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.
