Quick and Easy Lemon Orzo with Parmesan and Peas

Quick and easy lemon orzo with parmesan and peas – As the winter is starting to melt away we make recipes that scream spring like this recipe.

There’s truly nothing better than fresh from the garden produce. I didn’t understand this as a child and I don’t know that many really have experienced true farm to table even today. Mom and Dad would harvest the garden with all of us kids at the end of summer, but for me it was the excitement of fresh corn, homemade raspberry jam, and making boats to float in our mud room sink made out of hollowed out cucumbers, while Mom and Dad were anxious to cut open a juicy tomato, sprinkle it with a little salt and savor every bite.

I’m not kidding. I did not get that. I still don’t eat a tomato like an apple. Do you?

I have gained such an appreciation for food that you’ve labored over and it’s just fact, fresh picked tastes better.
