Caesar Orzo With Asparagus

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Halcyon Eve

I made this as a side for dinner tonight--mmm!! It was very good--even better than I expected! It was creamy and comforting, and the sweetness of the asparagus perfectly complemented the saltiness of the dressing. It was fairly speedy, too--always a plus!

Had this for lunch with a side salad. Very simple flavors that go well together. I used light Caesar dressing. Added a skosh of sea salt and cracked black pepper. Thanks.
