Scallops with Parmesan & Tarragon Orzo

Yummy is what't for dinner!

Scallops with Parmesan & Tarragon Orzo
*  1/2 lb of large scallops (usually 4-6)
*  Butter (hmmm 3 tbsp?)
*  Garlic (minced or pressed)
-- Heat the pan on medium until hot, then add butter and garlic - cook until garlic turns golden
-- Rinse the scallops in water and dab dry with paper towel, 
-- Shake salt and pepper over both sides of the scallops and place in the pan
-- Cook the scallops for about 4 minutes on each side or until they are golden on the ends and no longer translucent in the middle.

Parmesan & Tarragon Orzo - aka, Heaven
* 1/2 box of Orzo pasta
* More butter (2-4 tbsp)
* Parmesan cheese (1/4-1/2 cup)
* Dried tarragon (a dash)
-- Cook the pasta until it is ready to your liking and drain
-- In the same pot add the butter, cheese, tarragon and some salt & pepper (Turn off heat)
-- Mix together until the butter and cheese have melted sticking most of the little grains to at least a few others (I'd say let the thing mingle for about 4-5 minutes, off the heat)

**Serve all of this with your favorite veggie
