Orzo a La Melanie

30 mins (prep 15, cooking 15)
16 ingredients
8-12 servings
A colorful pasta dish, which can be served as a side dish, as a lunch and is particularly good for a buffet as it does not mind sitting around and tastes just as good at room temperature. I like this recipe because everyone in my house likes it (a rare occurrence) and because any vegetable can be substituted as long as it is cut up small. For vegetarians substitute vegetable stock.
