Side Dish, Salad
This pasta salad is an incredibly simple side dish to make and impresses anyone who eats it. I love the extra flavor that sautéing garlic and then roasting the corn before adding it to the orzo pasta, tomatoes, and fresh basil brings to the dish in a healthy way.
1-2 tbsp olive oil, plus 1/4 cup
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups fresh grilled corn
1 pint cherry tomatoes
1/2 lb orzo pasta
1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
