Recipe For Mushroom Orzo


1/2 cup butter, divided
8 pearl onions
1 cup uncooked orzo pasta
1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
1 cup water
1/2 cup white wine
garlic powder to taste
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup fresh parsley


Melt 1/2 the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onions, and cook until golden brown. Mix in orzo, mushrooms, and remaining butter. Cook and stir 5 minutes, until butter is melted and mushrooms are tender.

Pour water and wine into the skillet, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Season with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Cook 7 to 10 minutes, until orzo is al dente. Stir in the Parmesan cheese and parsley to serve.
