Tiny peas & pasta

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
4 tablespoons Butter
1 large Onion, diced
3 cups Sliced mushrooms (1/2 lb.)
2 tablespoons Chopped parsley
1 cup Orzo
2½ cup Chicken broth
1 cup Dry white wine
2½ cup Fresh petite peas
1 tablespoon Chopped fresh thyme
Salt and pepper to taste
3 tablespoons Grated Parmesan cheese

In a large heavy skillet, melt 2 tb. of the butter. Add onion, mushrooms and parsley; saute until softened. Remove from pan. Add the other 2 tb. of butter to the pan and heat until sizzling. Add orzo and stir constantly until golden brown. Return onion mushroom mixture to pan. Add chicken broth and wine. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer 10 to 15 minutes, until orzo is tender but still moist.

While orzo is cooking, steam peas just until barely tender. Add thyme and toss with pasta just before serving. Add salt and pepper to taste and sprinkle with Parmesan.
