Description

Make the most of fresh, in-season tomatoes with this easy, cheesy side dish!

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces, weight Whole Wheat Orzo (rice-shaped Pasta)
  • ¼ cups Olive Oil
  • 3 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 15 ounces, weight Cherry Tomatoes, Sliced
  • ⅔ cups Fresh Mozzarella, Grated
  • ¼ cups Fresh Basil, Chopped

Preparation

Boil a large pot of water. Salt the water and add the orzo. Cook according to package instructions for al dente, about 7 minutes. Then remove pot from heat and drain. Set the orzo aside.

Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a medium sized sauté pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until softened, about 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook until they soften and “burst,” about 3-5 minutes more.

Remove from heat and add the cooked orzo, grated mozzarella and chopped basil. Stir until cheese is melted and well combined. Serve.
