Orzo with Mushrooms and Onions

It is SO COLD OUTSIDE! I can’t believe that winter only officially started last month… I’m already dreaming of summer. But anyway, while we are in winter, might as well make the best of it! I love warm pastas in the winter. It is definitely not good for my waistline – but they are just so comforting!
