I found this recipe on Pinterest as a side dish and decided to turn it into our dinner. It caught my eye because, for some reason, I had a giant container of orzo pasta - which is pretty much just rice shaped pasta. I used whole wheat orzo, and added some chicken and extra veggies to the original recipe. I had boiled the chicken ahead of time over the weekend so it came together super fast!
1 cup whole wheat orzo pasta
1 cup of asparagus, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 cup of frozen peas
1-2 cups cooked, shredded chicken
1 tbsp butter
1/2 cup cream (not something I normally cook with, but it wasn't much so I went with it!)
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
salt & pepper
Bring a large pot of water to a boil then throw the orzo in.
Add the butter, cream, Parmesan and salt & pepper.
And that's it. Easy dinner & easy dishes - the best kind! Sawyer got to try asparagus for the first time that night - she wasn't quite sure what to do with it!
