Tre Stelle® Piave Orzo with Peas and Asparagus

Deliciously nutty Piave cheese pairs wonderfully with the fresh peas and asparagus in this recipe. Whole-grain rotini pasta is a great substitute for the orzo.

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.
