"Fresh, al dente vegetables and orzo with a creamy tomato and Parmesan sauce makes a fantastic side dish. This primavera is a good base recipe that you can tweak with other seasonal vegetables, or freshen up with fresh lemon juice or white wine."

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil; add 2 teaspoons salt. Cook orzo in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until tender yet firm to the bite, 6 to 11 minutes. Drain.
  2. Heat oil in a skillet over low heat. Add bell pepper and saute for 10 minutes. Increase heat to medium and add carrot, onion, and garlic. Saute until carrot begins to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Add zucchini and summer squash; cook for 1 minute more. Increase heat to high and add broth, tomato sauce, remaining salt, and pepper. Cook until sauce comes to a simmer, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low.
  3. Add orzo to the sauce and mix well. Remove from heat. Stir in half-and-half, followed by Parmesan cheese. Serve hot or at room temperature.
