Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook orzo in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain and spread onto a rimmed baking sheet to cool completely.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir zucchini and garlic in the hot oil until slightly tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Mix orzo, zucchini mixture, basil, vinegar, and remaining 1 teaspoon olive oil in a bowl; season with salt and pepper. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate to blend flavors, 1 hour to 1 day. Bring to room temperature before serving.

We liked this. Light, fresh flavors, and unusually delicious served at room temperature. I adjusted the amounts of oil and vinegar, however, to the 3:1 ratio I prefer. I also added some sliced black olives, basically because I had some leftover in the fridge after making a pizza but it was actually a very nice addition. Also, to make this more carb-friendly, I doubled the amount of zucchini. Wouldn’t hesitate to make this again…and I probably will.
