    Pour in half the jar of pasta sauce and all of the vegetable stock. Bring to the boil, add the orzo, stir really well then reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook, stirring constantly, until the orzo is cooked and the sauce has thickened – about 12-15 minutes. Stir in the parmesan and cheddar to serve.
