Summer Pasta Dish


Last week I went to the local farmers market with my good friend Kelly. If you don't already know, I really love farmers markets. I love the idea of supporting local businesses and farmers markets do exactly that. Well I am living at home during this transitional phase in my life I don't cook or buy food as frequently. However I know zucchini season is coming to an end, so I had create a few zucchini items before it is all gone. 

Orzo w/ Zucchini 

3 tablespoons olive oil, plus additional for skillet
3 medium zucchini, halved lengthwise
Salt & pepper
1 yellow onion
1 pound Orzo
2 lemons (will need the juice and the zest)
2 tablespoons fresh dill
1/3 lbs crumbled feta cheese 

  1. Preheat skill (medium-high heat) with olive oil.  Season Zucchini with 1/2 teaspoon salt.
  2. Grill on skillet until tender with golden brown marks (5 minutes per side)
  3. Transfer zucchini to cutting board and slice into 1/2 inch pieces
  4. Please in large bowl and sprinkle with shallot. Keep warm and set aside
  5. Cook Orzo according to package instructions. Once drained, add to the bowl with zucchini.
  6. Add olive oil, lemon zest and juice, and dill. Toss to combine. Top with feta and season with salt and pepper.
This meal is a great dish to share with others or bring as a side to party.
