Mushroom and Sweet Pea Orzo

Orzo is my absolute favorite and because it's so small, I like to pretend that it doesn't really count as pasta ... I can eat as much as I want.  That would be amazing, right?  Try this simple side dish - it's crazy good and worth each and every carb.
Best dishes and yummy dreams...
