Easy Cheesy Orzo

I am currently obsessing over food trucks.  I love how they take typical foods and give them a fancy twist.  Here is my take on typical mac and cheese.  This orzo is so rich and cheesy, it is the perfect side dish with burgers or chicken.  I made it with the french onion burger bites and it was definitely a delicious meal!
