Orzo with Peas

I made this recipe this week because I needed a quick side dish to go with some tilapia. It was quick and really tasty!

1.5 c. dry orzo
1 c. frozen peas
1 small onion, choppped
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 tbsp butter
1/4 c. chicken stock
(or water with bouillon)
1 c. parmesan
black pepper

Cook Orzo according to package directions, make sure to salt the water after it begins to boil. Drain. In another pan, melt butter and add onion and garlic. Cook until soft (a few minutes) Add peas, cook until peas are soft, Add chicken stock, and orzo. Stir. Remove from heat and add Parmesan and plenty of black pepper. (don't forget the pepper, I thought it made a big difference in the dish)
