8 oz uncooked orzo pasta
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 yellow onion, diced
1/2 pound asparagus, trimmed, cut into 2-inch pieces    
1 cup curly parsley, washed well, stems removed, and finely chopped
3 tablespoons fresh mint, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1 lemon, zest and juice
Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes

1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese for garnish

  1. Cook the orzo according to package directions and drain, reserving 1/4 cup of cooking liquid.
