Orzo Veggies are a great way to get picky eaters to try vegetables.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound asparagus, trimmed
  • 3 bell peppers, red, green and yellow
  • 6 green onions, chopped
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 medium zucchini
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1 cup orzo
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup pine nuts, toasted
  • 3/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cut vegetables, except tomatoes, into bite-sized pieces. Place first 5 ingredients (asparagus through zucchini) in a 9 by 13 inch baking pan. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil, garlic, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Toss well. Roast 30 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
  3. Add remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil to a large saucepan. Add orzo and saute until brown. Add broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and cook, covered, until liquid is absorbed.
