Orzo with Asparagus


This can be a main dish or side dish.

One pound of orzo

Two bundles of asparagus

4 cloves garlic

4 tablespoons olive oil

salt and pepper

One lemon zested and juiced

1/2 cup lemon garlic salad dressing

Boil the orzo in salted water till it is slightly underdone

Sauté the garlic and oil together

Cut the asparagus into one to two inch pieces and stir fry in the garlic oil till crisp tender

Season with salt, pepper and lemon zest

Add the cooked, drained orzo.

Add the lemon juice and salad dressing.

Mix well.

Watch it disappear

I had six adults for dinner and served this as a side dish and just had one small cup leftover.

You can add feta or parmesan cheese if you like.

It was a delicious meal. Grilled steak, orzo with asparagus, corn on the cob and a big salad with balsamic dressing and goat cheese
