Easy side dish: Orzo with black olives and asparagus recipe

The star of this Orzo with Black Olives and Asparagus recipe is the olives. Olives have long been one of my favorite foods and something I grew up eating. One of my younger siblings couldn’t pronounce “olives”, so they were called “labids” — which really doesn’t sound like “olives” at all, but the name stuck around. If I say “labids” to any of my siblings, they know exactly what I mean.
