To the skillet, add the oil, garlic, collard ribbons and sundried tomato slivers. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and sauté for a couple of minutes. Add the stock and let it bubble for just a second. Add the sausage and lemon juice. Toss until well combined.
In the meantime, boil the orzo in a pot of salted water until al dente.  Transfer the drained pasta into the skillet. Off the heat, add the butter and cheese. Toss it all together until melted and coated and AMAZING.
