Lemony Herbed Orzo

This is a nice fresh side dish with lots of herbs to give it taste.  I served it with the Lemon Garlic Chicken Kabobs and it went very well with that dish.  You could easily add some cooked chicken or shrimp to this dish for a dinner salad.

1 c. orzo
1 T. butter
1 T. olive oil
1/2 T. shallots
1/4 c. chopped parsley
1/8 c. sliced chives
1/2 T. chopped basil
1 1/2 T. lemon juice
1/2 T. lemon zest
1/6 c. parmesan cheese

Heat 6 c. of water to a boil in a large saucepan.  Add orzo and cook for 8 minutes.  Drain well.
Add olive oil and butter to the same saucepan and melt butter.  Add orzo back to the pot along with all remaining ingredients.  Stir well and serve.
