One Pot Orzo
The orzo is made in one pot while the butternut squash roasts in the oven.
What you'll need
In a medium saute pan, saute the shallot and garlic in butter until golden and aromatic.
Add in the remaining ingredients, except for the orzo. Bring liquid to a simmer.
Once simmering, add in the orzo. Cover and cook for 12 minutes, stirring every 3-4 minutes.
The orzo is ready when tender and most of the liquid is absorbed.
Meanwhile, roast the butternut squash at 425F for 30-35 minutes, until it is tender and golden.
Stir the butternut squash into the orzo. Add a splash of balsamic vinegar and a handful of parmesan.
