Recipe by Q As Mom

I came up with this recipe when my son was a toddler. He was a very picky eater and this was one of the few things he would actually eat. To this day I still make it often, he still asks for it; he's 9 now. If you don't have peas and carrots on hand, just use peas!

When orzo, peas and carrots are done; drain well. Return to the saucepan add butter, parmesan cheese stir to combine and season with salt and black pepper to taste. Serve.
