Grilled Vegetables and Orzo

It was another nice night in Florida so I was able to go for a relaxing run outside while I waited for Jason to get home from work. Since we are going to be traveling and eating most of our meals out this week/weekend we wanted something healthy for dinner. We both love zucchini and yellow squash on the grill so that was Jason's job. He sliced them up, mixed with olive oil, salt and pepper and put on the grill for a few minutes per side. I thought it would go nicely with some orzo that is more substantial in size than couscous but not as heavy as penne or another noodle.

Ingredients:
1 zucchini, sliced
1 yellow squash, sliced
1 fresh lemon squeeze
3/4 cup uncooked orzo pasta
4 tablespoons olive oil
Salt &Pepper
Garlic Powder
 
Directions:
1. Bring a pot of water to boil.
2. Wash and slice the zucchini and yellow squash. Drizzle with 2 Tablespoons olive oil and flavor with salt and pepper then place on the grill for a few minutes per side.
3. Add orzo to the boiling water and cook for 10 minutes.
4. Drain the orzo and place in a bowl with the grilled vegetables. Add the remaining olive oil, lemon juice and season with salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste.

Pin It!
