Orzo looks like rice, but it’s totally pasta; its shape and flavor makes it a team player for almost any dish. Pair it up with some vegetarian protein, some delicious veggies, and a light butter sauce and you’re good to go for lunch or dinner

Prepare orzo according to package instructions. Slice the bell pepper. Set a large pot of water to a boil and add in the corn, peas, and bell pepper and steam for 10-15 minutes. Drain the vegetables. Cube your tofu and pan fry in a greased skillet for 3-4 minutes on each side. Microwave the butter until melted and whisk in the parmesan until melted and mixed into the butter. While the orzo is still warm, pour it into a casserole dish with the tofu and vegetables. Pour the sauce on top and serve!
