Dana's Orzo & Pepper Pasta Salad

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Dana-MMH

My mom and I created this recipe and people rant and rave over it. You can use any pepper variation you choose too, I use all 3 for color presentation. I also use a garlic expression dressing but Italian dressing works just as well.

Great summertime salad It has all the flavors well love. I buy orzo pasta in bulk and measured 16 oz and cooked it for 8 minutes. I used yellow, red and orange peppers, also only added a large can of garbanzo beans no kidney and about 1/2 of a cup of chopped fresh parsley. For the Italian dressing I used kraft signature Tuscan Italian. I did add salt and alot of pepper. I think that as written it is a good salad next time I would like to add artichoke hearts to it as well. Made for the Summer Salad Snapshots in the cooking photo forum. Thanks for sharing this recipe. One I will be making again.
