Directions

Mealthy Tip

Any type of pasta can be used in place of the orzo. Couscous or rotini would be nice pasta varieties. If you are looking for a gluten-free version, try substituting rice for the orzo or use a sturdy gluten-free pasta. Add walnuts or pecans for a nutty crunch. Top the salad with sliced green onions or chives for added color and flavor.

I used roasted red peppers in this recipe instead of the red and yellow, raw bell peppers. I love the charred taste you get when they're roasted. Orzo is one of my favorite foods, and I was really please with the way this dish turned out. Simple and elegant.
