Creamy Orzo

After racking my brain for a good starch for Mother's Day I finally went to The Nest's What's Cooking board for more suggestions. Annie with Annie's Eats gave me another great idea with her Mushroom Orzo with Cheese. As soon as I saw her picture I knew I had to try it. I ran to the store to get some cremini's and was ready to go!

I loved the orzo and will definitely shred two cups of cheese next time vs. the one I used this time (Joseph didn't want to shred that much...). I will definitely be making this again for weekly meals.

Sautéed Mushroom Orzo with Cheese
  • 2 cups uncooked Orzo pasta
  • 3 Tbs. cold butter
  • 2 cups parmesan/romano blend (I only used 1 cup)
  • 5-6 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 Tbs. butter or olive oil

Cook Orzo according to package directions.

In the food processor combine cheese, 3 tbs. cold butter, garlic, salt and pepper. Process until smooth.

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt remaining butter or olive oil and sauté mushrooms until tender.

Drain pasta, add to mushrooms and stir. Gently stir in the cheese mixture. Stir until cheese has melted. Serve.
