You may recall I went though a phase in the winter where all I wanted to eat was Lemon Cream Sauce on pasta.
I mixed the ideas from that pasta, with the recipe for lemony orzo from this months Everyday Food magazine. I think this made a nice weekday side. I made enough orzo to make a little pasta salad for lunch tomorrow.
Creamy Lemon Orzo
1/4-1/3 cup uncooked orzo
1 tsp whipping cream
1 tsp Parmesan cheese
1/2 a lemon
1. Cook orzo. Drain well.
2. Toss orzo with whipping cream, Parmesan, lemon zest and a good squeeze of lemon juice. You can see from the picture I just did this at the table.
I topped mine with some parsley, but you could leave it out.
