“This is a fast, low budget and vegetarian friendly side dish, meal or potluck dish. It serves 2 as a meal and 4 as a side dish. Use pan drippings for added flavor.” - by dizzygrltoo

- Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the orzo pasta, and cook until al dente, 6 to 7 minutes; drain.
- Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms, and season with onion powder, salt, and pepper. Cook and stir until the mushrooms have softened and released their liquid, about 5 minutes. Stir in the butter, corn, peas, parsley, and cooked orzo pasta. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and serve immediately.

"MESSAGE FROM THE AUTHOR HERE: Your orzo will need to cook for close to 10 minutes for it not to be hard. Test it as you go if you want to until you are comfortable cooking this style of pasta. The edi..." See moretors changed my orignal direction slightly on this point. "
"Beautiful, fresh and delicious--the perfect side dish. I used a specialty "Spring Medley" orzo, and eliminated both the onion powder and corn. Served with "Tenderloin with Herb Sauce" and "Green Bean..." See mores with Almonds," also from this site, this was the perfect complement, with a subtle balance of flavors and colorful presentation.
