I often spend so much time on my main dish that I completely neglect to make a side dish. Which is why I love easy sides like this Creamy Lemon Herb Orzo. It only takes about 10 minutes from start to finish, and my whole family loves it. It could even pass as a nice light lunch or dinner with some grilled veggies or a salad. And it goes perfectly with almost any grilled meat–pork, chicken, or beef.
You can use whatever fresh herbs you have on hand in this recipe–parsley, thyme and oregano are some of my favorites. Just be sure not to overcook the orzo, since it will continue cooking when you return it to the pan with the lemon juice and cream.
