1 pound asparagus, trimmed
3 bell peppers (red, green and yellow)
6 green onions, chopped
1 c. grape tomatoes, halved
1 medium zucchini
4 T. olive oil, divided
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 T. Italian seasoning
¾ tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. coarsely ground black pepper
1 c. orzo
2 c. low-sodium vegetable or chicken broth
½ c. pine nuts, toasted
¾ c. crumbled feta cheese

Preheat oven to 350.

Cut vegetables, except tomatoes, into bite-size pieces. Place first 5 ingredients (asparagus through zucchini) in a 13x9” baking dish. Add 2 T. olive oil, garlic, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Toss well. Roast 30 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

Add remaining 2 T. olive oil to a large saucepan. Add orzo and sauté until brown. Add broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and cook, covered, until liquid is absorbed.

Add orzo to roasted vegetables. Mix well. Sprinkle pine nuts and cheese over top. Cover with foil and bake 30 minutes. Serve hot or at room temperature. Serves 8.
