Lemon Orzo w/ Mushrooms

This was so easy to make and it had such a nice spring flavor to it. I found it in a Rachel Ray Magazine. 

- 1 lb orzo pasta
- Salt
- 12 oz sliced mushrooms (more or less to taste)
- 2 lemons
- 3/4 cup toasted pine nuts
- olive oil 

Cook the Orzo according to directions (usually takes 8-10 mins) in Salt water. Meanwhile heat pan with 1 tbls of olive oil and cook sliced mushrooms for about 7 mins or until desired tenderness.

While those are all going, zest 1 lemon and juice 2 lemons into a bowl. If you didn't buy toasted nuts, this is when you would want to toast them (in the oven is what i did). When pasta is done, drain and rinse with hot water. Return to pan and add pine nuts and lemon juice/zest. Mix well. Add cooked mushrooms and serve!
