I am for sure a CARB-o-HOLIC. I almost never meet a bread I don’t like or a pasta that I don’t want to sing romance songs to. I rarely buy big yummy loafs of bread, because I will eat them all up instead of my dinner.
You know. Like a toddler.
But pasta salads are really the best of both worlds! You get your delicious carbs, but you don’t have to feel super bad about it, because there are also lots of nice yummy veggies thrown in!
This pasta salad is just like that. It’s got delicious orzo, which I just love and think is so perfect for summery side salads, and then it’s got fresh asparagus and zucchini. Plus! It doesn’t have a mayo base, making it perfect to bring to summer BBQ’s and picnics. It has the sweetness of shallots, the tartness of some lemon, and some red pepper flakes for extra kick at the end.
It’s a flavor sensation if I do say so myself. 🙂
