Last night we went to our friend Lisa and Andrew’s house so I brought my favorite pasta salad. This is the first time I’ve made this salad this year and I love the way the kitchen smells while I’m putting it together.
I started making this loosely based on an orzo pasta salad my friend Celeste told me she makes.
- cooked orzo
- chopped up asparagus (I throw it in the pasta water a few minutes before the orzo is done to cook it)
- halved grape tomatoes
- feta (I used reduced fat)
- one lemon zest and juice
- shredded or ribbons of basil
- olive oil
