This recipe for Orzo with Roasted Tomatoes and Zucchini is a treat! It is a dish that is easy to prepare and that I recommend either for a meal during the week, a take-out lunch or to accompany your barbecues this summer.

Orzo, what is it?

The orzo, which means “barley” in Italian, is a type of pasta shaped like grains of rice. They are also found under the name risoni, which means “big rice” in Italian too.

This type of pasta is very present in themediterranean cuisine, especially the Greek cuisine. Orzo pasta can be served as a salad, in a soup or in risotto style.

The following recipe can be served warm, like a classic pasta dish or cold as a salad.
