Add the onion to the skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, until it has softened, about 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the orzo and cook until it is shiny, about 1 minute. Add the wine and cook until all of the wine has been absorbed, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add the chicken broth and cook, stirring often, until most of the liquid has been absorbed and the pasta is tender, about 12 to 14 minutes. Return the pancetta to the skillet and add the peas, cream, and Parmesan cheese. Season with the lemon zest, salt, and pepper.
