Creamy Orzo with Asparagus and Parmesan

Ummm, SO.GOOD!  I made this as a side dish for our Father's Day dinner.  I love orzo these days so this really hit the spot!  I pinned it from here.  

1 cup orzo
1 cup asparagus, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 tbsp butter or margarine
1/4 to 1/2 cup cream
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
Salt & Pepper, to taste


-  Bring a large pot of water 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.
-  Quickly 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 salt and pepper to taste.
