Orzo Ranch Pasta Salad
We’re enjoying those last few weeks of summer, getting out and having fun while the weather is wonderful. One of the easiest ways we’ve found to enjoy is by having a simple barbecue. A few friends or family and great food, what beats that? Not much planning involved, very little prep work either, just great times and plenty of good food.
Personally, I enjoy preparing side dishes that take advantage of items I already have on hand. Pasta salads are a great way to do this, it almost becomes a challenge. What can I make with what I already have? For this particular BBQ I surveyed what I had on hand in my pantry and refrigerator and tada that’s how Orzo Ranch Pasta Salad came about.
On-hand I had Orzo pasta, tomatoes, ranch dressing mix, olives, cheese, and seasonings. All of these ingredients together make a simple yet delicious side dish that is so easy and takes only a few minutes to prepare. This means I’ll be spending more time enjoying the BBQ not stuck in the kitchen.
