    * 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    * 2 cloves garlic, chopped
    * 1 small zucchini, chopped
    * 1 cup shredded carrots, chopped

    * 1 cup orzo pasta
    * 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    * 3 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley, a handful

Heat a medium skillet over medium high heat. Add extra-virgin olive oil, 2 turns of the pan in a slow stream. Add garlic, zucchini and carrots. Saute 5 minutes. Add chicken broth and bring to a boil. Add orzo and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to medium. Cook, stirring occasionally until pasta absorbs the liquid and is al dente in texture, 10 minutes.
