Ahead of time, saute the onion in the olive oil and half the butter until limp, then add asparagus along with 2 T. of the chicken broth, the prosciutto, and the pepper. Cover and simmer until the asparagus is the texture you like. Set it aside. When getting ready to serve, boil the orzo in the 2 1/2 c. water unsalted) and the broth until done al dente (or softer if you prefer). Drain off the liquid (I saved mine to use in breads and soups). Toss immediately with the asparagus mixture, the rest of the butte r and the cheese. Check for salt but be cautious, as this dish is easily oversalted.
