Cheesy Orzo

16(oz) chicken or vegetable broth
1 cup orzo pasta
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste

Add broth to a medium pan and bring to a boil. Add the orzo, cover pot and reduce heat to simmer. Cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until liquid is absorbed and pasta tender. Watch the pasta during the last few minutes, if too much liquid has evaporated, you can add a few tablespoons more of broth. When pasta is done remove the lid and stir in the cheese. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
