1 TBSP unsalted butter
1 TBSP olive oil
2 large leeks, thin sliced (white and light green parts only) and rinsed
8 oz orzo pasta
1 medium garlic clove, minced
2 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
salt & pepper


1. In a medium saucepan melt the butter with the oil over medium-high heat, add the leeks and cook, stirring often, until softened about 5 minutes.
