Orzo and rice pilaf

2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/2 cup orzo
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup long grain white rice
2 cups chicken or veggie broth
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup peas - frozen or fresh
1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter or margarine. Add orzo, garlic and onion. Cook, stirring frequently, until orzo is browned. Add all remaining ingredients except for the parmesan. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Turn heat to low, cover and let cook for 20 minutes or until rice is done. Stir in parmesan cheese, let stand, covered, for a few minutes.
