How to make Orzo Salad with Roasted Vegetables?

This salad is so easy. While your orzo boils, throw all of your vegetables on a sheet pan and season with salt, pepper, and olive. Let them roast for 20 minutes and then add to your cooked pasta. Mix up the dressing and pour over, then refrigerate. Once cool, add your cheese. I have traditionally made this recipe with feta cheese, but recently mixed it up with fresh mozzarella pearls and I really liked that as well! Choose whichever you prefer! The feta cheese adds a tangy, salty bite and the mozzarella adds a creamy texture.

    1. Thank you! It is one of my favorites! Unfortunately it is not one of my 21 day fix recipes! You could probably do whole wheat orzo in a yellow container, a big serving of veggies in green and the cheese in a blue. And then go light on the dressing!
