In comes this quick and easy recipe. It comes from a recipe from a cookbook "One Pot Cooking" that Gail gave me as a present years back and had somehow gotten shelved in my bedroom instead of on the shelf in the living room with the rest of my cookbooks. Now that it is back where it belongs, I am putting it to use. I always complain about doing dishes and not having a dishwasher so this cookbook is a lifesaver. I loved this fresh easy recipe and will definitely make it again. Please note that fresh mint really makes the dish, so it is a must!!
-1 cup orzo
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- juice of 2 lemons (I just used 1)
- 7 ounces feta cheese
- plum tomatoes or cherry tomatoes
- black olives
-salt and pepper to taste
- to garnish more mint and sun dried tomatoes (optional)
The amounts are not so exact, so feel free to eyeball it.
Cook orzo until al dente and drain. Let cool, and then mix together all ingredients in a bowl. Add garnish if desired.
