  • Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil over high-heat. Add the orzo and cook until tender but still firm, about 11 minutes. Drain.
  • Meanwhile, add olive oil to a skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic to pan and sauté for 1 minute. Add chopped Portabello mushrooms. Cover and sauté, until cooked down and tender, about 6 to 7 minutes.
  • Combine broth and arrowroot starch in a small bowl; stir until well blended. Add broth mixture to pan; bring to a boil. Cook 1 minute or until thick, stirring constantly.
  • Add milk, lemon juice, salt, and red pepper flakes. Continue to stir until warmed.
  • Remove from heat. Stir in fresh mint and black pepper. Add pasta to broth mixture; toss gently to coat. Serve immediately.
