Garlic Butter Asparagus Skillet
This really got a lot of rave reviews. I served this with baked chicken, but this could be a wonderful vegetarian meal alone. The flavor was outstanding! That is if you love garlic like I do.
- 1 cup orzo, uncooked
- 1 lb. asparagus, fresh or frozen (I used frozen)
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 3 large garlic cloves, minced
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 2 tablespoons whole milk
- Salt and pepper to taste
Cook orzo from package directions. Add the asparagus pieces to the orzo the last 2 minutes of cooking. Remove from heat and drain.
While pasta is cooking, add butter to a skillet and melt over medium heat. Stir in garlic and cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Add orzo and asparagus to the skillet; stir in the cheese, milk, salt and pepper. Cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat and serve. You may serve with additional Parmesan cheese.
Makes 4 delicious servings.
