Greek Style Orzo Salad With Balsamic Vinaigrette

This is a variation of a recipe I came up with years ago. Because the ingredients are combined while the pasta is still warm, the dressing really soaks in and some of the cheese melts, leaving a creamy texture. I usually have a little bit of the dressing left over, which I save for spinach salad later. Hope you enjoy!
