Caught your attention didn’t I? This recipe includes Snow peas and Mushrooms and I intended to make it as a side dish but it ended up being the main dish. Well, a side for the kids and the main dish for us since the kids ate all the pizza. Also, I thought I would end up using a bit of butter and salt/pepper but did not need any of them so if you make this, let me know if you added any.

1 teaspoon olive oil
1 shallot, minced
8 oz. organic baby bella mushrooms, sliced
3 oz fresh snow peas, cut*
1 lb. orzo (use whole wheat if you can)
1. Boil water, add salt and cook orzo per instrucitons on the box.
2. Heat oil in skillet on medium heat. Add shallots and saute 1 minute. Add mushrooms and saute 3 minutes or until brown. Add peas and cook for 1 minute.
3. Drain orzo, and mix in mushroom/pea mixture.
*I simply cut them in half, than once lengthwise
