Looking for a quick, yummy dish to bring to a summer BBQ? Well, look no further than this orzo pasta salad made with the freshest summertime ingredients…tomatoes, cucumbers and basil! For some reason I always blank out when trying to think of an interesting dish to bring to someone’s house.  I mean, I write a food blog for goodness sake!

I feel like this year was the turning point I’ve been waiting for.
