Neon Orzo

This orzo is very green.

It sure was delicious though! I had a lot of peas left over after Thanksgiving, so I decided to turn them into a sauce. I pureed cooked peas with a little bit of chicken stock, olive oil, salt, pepper, chives and mint (I briefly blanched the herbs so that they'd retain their color). Then I froze the sauce. I had a meeting tonight and little time to cook, so all I had to do was toss some cooked orzo with the defrosted sauce for an instant dinner.

Looks great. Good use of the peas and spices with the pasta.
