Ingredients:

16 ounces dry orzo pasta

1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

3 to 4 cloves garlic, minced

3 teaspoon dried oregano

1 cup olive oil

Salt and pepper

2 to 3 cups grape or cherry tomatoes, sliced in half

3 tablespoons capers (optional)

1 cup crumbled feta cheese

1/2 cup chopped fresh Italian parsley

Directions:

Cook orzo pasta in boiling water according to directions on package then drain and set aside to cool slightly. Don't overcook the orzo or it will get mushy! In a clean jar with a tight-fitting lid add lemon juice, garlic, oregano, oil and a little salt and pepper. Put on lid and shake well until dressing starts to thicken a bit and coats jar. You can also whisk dressing ingredients together in a bowl. Toss orzo together with the lemon vinaigrette. Toss in tomatoes and capers if using. Stir in feta and parsley just before serving, leaving a little of each to garnish the top if you like. You can also garnish the top with lemon wedge or slices.
