Asparagus And Edamame Orzo Salad. Orzo, a favorite and so versatile to use in a salad or any other dish


Orzo, also known as risoni, is a form of short-cut pasta, shaped like a large grain of rice. Orzo is traditionally made from flour, but it can also be made of whole grain. It is often made with semolina, a type of flour made from durum wheat.

Ingredients – Serves 4

1 cup orzo pasta
1 bunch asparagus, about 20 spears
3/4 cup frozen shelled edamame
3 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp freshly grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, rinsed, drained, and thinly sliced
1 tbsp chopped fresh basil
1 small garlic clove, minced
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
Freshly grated parmesan cheese, for serving
