Greek Orzo Pasta

This is such an easy recipe and great for parties. My friend Lindsey gave me this recipe last year and I still love it lots. Especially for spring/summer.

Greek Orzo Pasta

Ingredients

  • 1/4-1/2 cup Trader Joes Greek Style Feta Dressing
  • Feta Cheese (or Mozzarella) - Cut up/shredded
  • 2-3 SMALL Diced Cucumber
  • 2 Diced Tomatoes (I used Grape Tomatoes, so about 15 of them)
  • 1/4-1/2 Diced Red Onion (leave out if kids don't like spicy things)
  • 1-3 small Diced Sweet Peppers (I used mostly orange)
  • 1 Stalk Diced Celery (optional)
  • 1 - 1/2 Cup Orzo Pasta (I used Trader Joes Brand)

Instructions

  1. You cook up the Orzo Pasta. I think I cooked up about a cup 1/2 worth? it makes a lot.
  2. Once cooked you mix in all your veggies into your Pasta (once drained). Then pour in as much dressing as you like. It honestly is up to how strong a flavor you want. So start with maybe 1/4 a cup and work your way up to more if you want more.
  3. The Feta Cheese you'd just dice up or shred and once Pasta is cooled add that in. I btw hate Feta, but like it in this recipe. If I dont have it handy though I use mozzarella instead.
  4. Serve it chilled. I have noticed after a day in the fridge the orzo soaks up the dressing a lot. So sometimes if served as a left over, you may want to freshen it up with some extra dressing the day served.
