Recipe: Creamy Orzo with Roasted Vegetables

I absolutely love the texture of this creamy orzo with roasted vegetables. It’s got just enough cheese to produce that perfect soft, gooey mouthfeel of mac and cheese but it has enough vegetables to keep the flavor smokey and not just slip you in to a full on carb coma after eating it. It comes together in just a few minutes and there’s no second pan of sauce to wash so it makes a good weeknight meal.
