  • 2 14 - ounce can low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cups whole-wheat orzo
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup thinly sliced leeks (white part only)
  • 1/2 pound asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan
  • 1/3 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 8 ounces smoked salmon, coarsely chopped
