Orzo Pasta Salad is a refreshing twist on traditional pasta salad with fresh tomatoes, capers and a light lemon herb vinaigrette.
Cook orzo according to package directions.
Saute olive oil and minced garlic in a skillet and over medium high heat for 1-2 minutes. Add tomatoes and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes (until tomatoes become soft). Remove from heat and set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the cooked orzo, capers and liquid, lemon juice, thyme and parsley with the tomato and garlic mixture. Toss until thoroughly combined.
Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour or overnight. Season with salt and pepper, to taste before serving
