Roasted Asparagus Orzo

    We eat quite a bit of orzo at our house. It makes a great side dish when you are ready to take a break from your normal sides. The orzo is great by itself but the asparagus makes a nice addition.

    • Roasted Asparagus Orzo

    • 1 bundle Asparagus

    • 1 TBS Olive oil Salt & Pepper

    • 3 1/2 c chicken broth

    • 4 TBS butter

    • 1/2 c onion, chopped

    • 2 garlic cloves, minced

    • 2 c orzo

    • 1/2 c white cooking wine

    • Parmesan cheese

    • Place asparagus on baking sheet and toss with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Roast for 15-20 min, tossing once, cook till tender. In a large frying pan melt the butter and add the onions, just before the onions are translucent add the orzo. Stir while cooking till brown. Add the garlic. Cook for 1-2 minutes. Add the cooking wine let boil for a couple minutes. Add the chicken broth. Once boiling put a lid on the pan and turn down the heat to a simmer. Let cook for 20 min or till most of the liquid is absorbed and the orzo is tender. Toss in the asparagus. Season with salt, pepper, and Parmesan cheese.
