Orzo is one of my favorite pasta. It’s like rice, but has the texture of pasta. I really enjoy it. My high school sweetheart ended up using orzo for the dinner he had to make for the cooking class he was in as a senior. He had never had orzo, and I used that assignment as a way to introduce him to so many new things! His family wasn’t very… adventurous with their food, and they had to really budget so I helped out a little bit with that dinner so he could make something yummy and different!
Orzo will always make me think of that meal and that time spent together. This lemony asparagus and orzo is a unique and delicious dish. I think you’ll love it! Check out the recipe on the next page.
