Recipe Review "Orzo with Sun Dried Tomatoes"

As promised I am going to review the pasta salad that I was soooo excited to make.  First of all I was cooking with ingredients that I had never cooked with.  Roasted red peppers I have on sandwiches in the past and really enjoy.  Sun dried tomatoes sounded wonderful.  Orzo, I must be honest, I was not sure if it was pasta or rice.  So off I went to Harris Teeter to gather the ingredients.

Everything looks so good, so colorful.

Chopped the red peppers & took a small piece to taste.  Tasted good

Chopped the dried tomatoes & took a small piece to taste.  Tasted like raisins?

Turned out to be a colorful salad, looked pretty good.

The salad should go well with the corn on the cob and steak that are on the grill.

The meal is ready!  As you can see there is a rice dish and my pasta dish.  I knew Joe would not be interested in the pasta so I made him a boxed rice mix.

Brodie has his eye on the pasta:-)

So how was the meal you ask?  The steak was good, the corn was good, watermelon was fine.  My pasta was awful!  I can't even explain why.  Just an odd flavor.  Usually I can eat anything if I add a bit of salt....I tried that but to no avail.  So in the trash it went.  Joe was kind enough to share some of his rice.
I have been told by several folks that there are many variations of sun dried tomatoes & that I should try again, & I will, but probably not any time soon:-)

Happy Cooking Everyone:-)
