Orzo with chicken and vegetablesOrzo with chicken and vegetables

When I went to Vancouver with my mom in March, we stayed with my aunt’s family. My aunt’s sister-in-law is a really good cook and one day she made this orzo pasta with vegetables for us. It sounded so simple to make and tasted so good that I made a mental note to recreate the recipe when I get back. After making it for the first time last week I knew I had to make it again so that I can share the recipe as soon as possible with all of you.

Since most sauce-less pasta dishes with vegetables end up being called a salad, I don’t know if this too should be called that. Whether you call it a salad or not, its still plenty good and fresh and light for summer time meals. You could skip the chicken and the butter and make this vegan/vegetarian, if you like. I serve it as a main dish and add chicken in with the veggies, but you could make it just with the vegetables and orzo with grilled chicken or fish served on the side.

I did my first snapchat recipe story today (forgive me if that’s not what its called, I am still learning). Thanks to Asha from Food, Fashion and Party (love her blog) who has been motivating me to start snapping, I finally did today. I am still fairly new with it, but in case you want to follow you can add me @theNovHousewife and see the behind the scenes of making this orzo with chicken and vegetables on Snapchat.
