Were you expecting a pumpkin recipe today? Not so fast. This week has been one of the hottest we’ve had all summer in NYC, so pumpkin needs to wait a few weeks! I’m still cooking summery dishes and loving it! Like this Orzo and Snap Pea Salad, with yellow squash and zucchini. This is an easy one-pot meal that is the perfect light dinner!

This recipe comes from Yahoo! Food, which is one of my new favorite sites for all things food. There are so many awesome recipes, interesting articles, and handy tips – I could spend hours browsing their website!

I’m always struggling with what to make for dinner. After a long day of work, I just don’t have time to make something complicated. Nor do I want to do a ton of dishes! So I absolutely love one-pot meals.

The veggies in this salad cook in the same pot with the orzo – you just toss them in for the last 3 minutes of the orzo cooking time. Love that! The whole mixture is tossed with a simple olive oil and lemon juice dressing, seasoned with salt and pepper, and topped with a generous sprinkling of Parmesan.

For me, the more Parmesan, the better! It is actually kind of embarrassing when we go out to Italian restaurants and the waiter is grating fresh cheese on my pasta – they try to stop and I make them keep grating until I have a small mountain of parm…it is just so good!
