Creamy Parm. Orzo

1 cup orzo
1 cup asparagus, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 tbsp butter or margarine
1/4-1/2 cup half and half
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Garlic, Salt & Pepper, to taste

Bring a large sauce pan of water (filled about halfway) to a boil over medium heat. Cook the orzo until tender, about 10 minutes.
After the orzo has been cooking for about 5 minutes, add the asparagus to the same pot. Once the orzo and asparagus are cooked and tender, drain and return to the pot.
Add the Parmesan cheese and butter. Stir thoroughly, allowing both the cheese and butter to melt. Slowly add the cream to the mixture, while stirring. Continue to stir and add cream until you reach your desired consistency.
Season with garlic, salt and pepper.
I LOVED this recipe.... it was amaaazing! The Hubby rating isnt that great because orzo is just not his thing. *Thank you & Pinterest for the recipe!
Take care- DCW
