Summer Orzo Salad

"Pasta salad is a classic favorite. Hearty noodles with plenty of mix-ins and a tasty dressing to coat it all. Pasta Salad makes for a great side at a barbecue, a tasty lunch with some protein on top, or even as a snack all on its own. But don’t feel restricted to penne, fusilli, or macaroni noodles in a pasta salad. Switch it up with orzo, which is a very short grain that looks similar to rice, but is actually pasta. Orzo has a lovely, soft texture and is super easy to cook as compared to risotto, which it is often mistaken for. The orzo alone, however, isn’t the star of this Summer Orzo Salad. We’ve got oven roasted, caramelized tomatoes, quite literally bursting with juices and flavor, which are baked alongside sweet white onion and fresh garden zucchinis and mixed together with creamy, smooth goat cheese for a perfect balance of flavors."
