Lemon Orzo Primavera
Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Cook Time: 15 Minutes Ready In: 30 Minutes
Yields: 4 servings

"Colorful vegetables and the flavors of lemon and thyme make this
orzo dish great for picnics. You can chop the zucchini and carrot
instead of grating them to cut down on prep time, just be sure to
cook them for a few minutes longer before adding the orzo."

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup uncooked orzo pasta
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 medium zucchini, shredded
1 medium carrot, shredded
1 (14 oz.) can vegetable broth
1 lemon, zested
1 tablespoon dried thyme
1/4 cup grated Parmesan

Heat the oil in a pot over medium heat.
Stir in orzo, and cook 2 minutes, until golden.
Stir in garlic, zucchini, and carrot, and cook 2 minutes.
Pour in the broth and mix in lemon zest.
Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer 10 minutes, or until
liquid has been absorbed and orzo is tender.
Season with thyme and top with Parmesan to serve.
