Ingredients

  • 1 pound orzo pasta
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil (divided)
  • 1 medium shallot (finely chopped)
  • 1 clove garlic (peeled and smashed)
  • 2 pints cherry tomatoes (halved)
  • 1 cup crumbled feta
  • 1/2 cup freshly chopped mint leaves
  • 3 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup arugula

Instructions

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the orzo and cook until tender but still firm to the bite, about 7 minutes. While the pasta is cooking, place the oil in a large saute pan over medium low heat. Add the shallot and garlic and saute until the shallot begins to soften and the garlic is fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the tomatoes and warm through, about 1 minute. Add the warm tomato mixture to a large bowl along with the feta, arugula, mint, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. Drain the orzo, add it to the tomato mixture and toss to coat. Drizzle with the remaining 1/4 cup olive oil and serve.
