How To Make Orzo with Zucchini and Tomato
Like any other pasta, orzo gives a delicious dish when cooked with zucchini and tomato. For the best experience, sprinkle with grated cheese on top!
Cook pasta in large pot of salted water as directed for al dente.
Reserve about ½ cup of liquid before draining. Drain orzo in a colander and add the oil to the pot.
Saute garlic for about 1 minute until fragrant. Add the zucchini and tomatoes, season with salt and pepper, and mix well. Cook for about 3 to 4 minutes until tender.
Add the cooked orzo and stir to combine all. Add some of the reserved liquid as needed so pasta isn’t dry.
Add freshly grated cheese and stir.
