We are BIG fans of one pot meals that can be whipped up quick! This Creamy Orzo can be eaten as a side dish or even a main dish depending on what you decide to put in it! This one is a vegetarian version made with mushrooms and asparagus!

The cool thing about orzo dishes, they can be tweaked so many ways! You could take it the Mediterranean route with tomatoes, red onion and black olives. You could go the Italian route with Italian sausage, spinach and Parmesan. So many options!
