You know this dish had to be pretty special if John gave it 4.5 stars! He has been stingy with the ratings lately so I'm glad he enjoyed this dish. On Wednesdays in our newspaper is a publication called American Profile and this is where this recipe came from (retyped here).
Started with these fresh ingredients (and we actually found a zucchini in our garden that wasn't the size of a baseball bat!)
The veggies are chopped, tossed with olive oil and Italian seasonings and then roasted
Meanwhile prepare the orzo pasta by first sauteing it in olive oil (the flavor from doing this is amazing) and then simmer with chicken broth until liquid is absorbed.
Toast pine nuts (this is done in a dry pan over medium heat)
Once veggies are roasted, mix in orzo and top with feta and pine nuts - cover and bake for about 25 minutes
This was really good! I'm calling the leftovers!
