Cielo Chiaro Special: Orzo Vegetale con Crema
1 Tablespoon butter
One medium onion, chopped
Two medium carrots, chopped
2 cups veggie stock
1 cup orzo
1-1/2 peas (frozen, but fresh would work)
1 cup panna cucina
1/3 cup Gorgonzola dolce (which is Gorgonzola and mascarpone, like here)
Salt and pepper, to taste
Directions:1. Place the butter in a medium-sized saucepan over medium high heat. Once the butter bubbles, add the onion and sauté, stirring occasionally, for a couple minutes or until they’re just getting golden. Add the carrots to the pan, and sauté five more minutes.
2. Add the stock, stir, and add the orzo. Cook 8 to 10 minutes until the orzo is close to al dente-ish.
3. Add the peas, cook two minutes, and the panna cucina and the Gorgonzola. Stir, cook for another minute or two until everything is well combined. Taste, add salt and pepper as desired, stir, and taste again. Serve hot.
