4 servings



1/2 cup (125) heavy cream
1 cup (250) chicken or
vegetable broth
1 tsp. (5) lemon juice
2 tsp. (10) lemon zest, grated
1-1/2 cup (375) Tre Stelle® Piave Cheese, shredded or

In a medium saucepan over medium heat bring cream, chicken or vegetable broth to a slow boil. Add lemon juice, lemon zest and Piave cheese, reduce heat to medium-low and continue to cook, stirring often, until cheese is melted.

In a large pot of boiling salted water, add orzo and cook for approximately 5 minutes; add asparagus and peas, continue cooking until pasta is al dente and vegetables are tender - approximately 4 additional minutes.

Drain pasta and vegetables and return to saucepan; stir in cream cheese sauce and parsley. Garnish with additional Piave and serve.
