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.

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:-)
