Lemon Whole Wheat Orzo with Sweet Peas and Parmesan

I love love love orzo. This great combination is a lighter take on the whole pasta side dish dish. Take it to a holiday party for a great dish that everyone will compliment you about.


Serves 2

1 1/2 cups of whole wheat orzo

3 cups low sodium chicken broth

1 cup peas, frozen or fresh, steamed

2 tablespoons parsley

1/2 lemon, juice only

2 tablespoons Parmesan


Bring the cups of chicken broth to a boil. Add while wheat orzo and cook through. Add peas. Add the juice of the lemon and the parsley.  The excess broth should be absorbed into the pasta but if there is too much liquid, drain. Add salt and pepper to taste. Top with cheese and serve.
