Servings: 6
Ingredients
1 pound orzo
3 bell peppers small dice (red, yellow, orange)
2 shallots diced
2 cloves garlic minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 cup frozen peas defrosted
1/2 cup toasted pine nuts
1/4 cup chopped mint
For the dressing
1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar

Instructions
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cook orzo according to package, about 7-8 minutes. On a large sheet pan toss the bell peppers, shallots, and garlic with 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Spread into a single layer and roast for about 20 minutes until veggies are softened.

Meanwhile, make the dressing. Whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, salt and red wine vinegar. Set aside.

Once orzo is cooked, drain and add to a large bowl. When veggies are cooked, add them to the orzo and stir to combine. Pour dressing over the warm orzo and toss until orzo is lightly coated. Gently stir in peas, pine nuts, and mint. Serve warm, room temp, or chilled!
