Al Dente On The Side: CNY Regional Market Pasta Salad II

2013-08-03 at 13-28-47

My first CNY Regional Market Pasta Salad was gone in a matter of days. The Wife scarfed it down without much challenge.

This one has sat a little while, but not because it wasn’t good. There’s just a lot of it. Stupid orzo.

Orzo is a great pasta and probably my favorite shape. It’s also deceptively small. The little grains seem to explode in size when cooked. A seemingly small bag of pasta explodes like a family of rabbits.

The pasta came from my favorite haunt at the market — Flour City Pasta — and the tomatoes from Schrader Farms in the outdoor B aisle.

  • 12 oz. orzo (I used a mix of Flour City Pasta’s — C Shed — primavera and emmer)
  • 12 halved grape tomatoes (from Schrader Farms in the B Aisle)
  • Parsley, basil and thyme (grown from plants purchased from Delaney Farms in the D shed), to taste
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 4 tbsp. white wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. whole grain dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp. brown sugar
