Here is the recipe I came up with for my Orzo Salad. You can buy 2 shapes of orzo. I like the elongated shape because it doesn't compete with the shape of the pine nuts the way the tear drop orzo shape does.
Over medium heat, toast 1/2 C Pine Nuts in Olive Oil. Place in bowl. Dice 1 Red Pepper and saute for 3 minutes in the same pan as the pine nuts. Place in bowl.
Steam for 2 minutes, 1 1/2 C Broccoli florets. Rinse in cold water to stop the cooking process. Cook 1 1/2 C Orzo in a large pot of boiling water. It will take about 7 minutes. Drain and rinse in cold water to stop cooking process. Toss in 1 Tbl Olive Oil.
Mix up a Balsamic salad dressing or use your favorite Italian dressing. I like to use Good Season's Italian dressing packettes and I combine 2 vinegars and 2 oils when I make it. Toss all ingredients together and add S&P to taste. Top with Grated Parmesan Cheese. You can make this with many combinations of vegetables. I sometimes use grape tomato halves, black olives cut in half and asparagus.
