Tri-Colore Orzo

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Kim12469

Giada De Laurentiis recipe that is awesome. I made this to take camping and add to a potluck. It was so easy and it keeps so well. I use a Spring Mix instead of Arugula and use whole wheat orzo. I make big batches and take it for lunch at work.

This is a delicious recipe. I was impressed how the leftovers held up in the fridge. The ricotta salata is a fantastic taste in it, next time I plan to add extra.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and cook until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  2. Drain pasta and put the pasta on a large cookie sheet.
  3. Drizzle the pasta with 3 tablespoons olive oil, toss, spread out, and set aside to cool.
  4. Once the orzo is cool, transfer to a large serving bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and toss gently to combine. Serve.
  5. Prep time doesn't include cooling time for orzo but it does cool rather quickly.
