This colorful dish can be served as a main dish or a side & is great hot or cold! If you are watching your fat intake, you can skip the olive oil mixture & just toss the vegetables with extra Italian dressing. If you or a guest has a gluten sensitivity, you can substitute gluten free spaghetti for the orzo, just break it into small pieces before boiling, or use long grain or brown rice instead of the pasta.
