Orzo and Roasted Vegetables

This tasty recipe I got from my mother! In honor of Mother’s Day, here is how to create this dish! :

Start by preheating the oven to 425 and chopping up your veggies. You need to dice red bell pepper, yellow bell pepper and red onion to one inch thickness. Toss this with 2 cloves minced garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper onto a baking sheet. Roast these in the oven for 30 minutes or until browned (flipping once). Meanwhile, start the orzo. Cook it in salted boiling water for 7-9 minutes. Drain the orzo and put into a serving bowl. Add the roasted vegetables to the bowl along with any juices that they released when cooking. Add the dressing. This consists of lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. (Super simple and fresh). Top it off with fresh basil, scallions, toasted pine nuts and feta cheese. This is a great recipe for parties because it can be made in large batches! It’s a tasty, fresh and healthy summer recipe!
