Roasted Summer Vegetables with Orzo

An amazing way to savor the flavors of summer. Recipe modified from my mama's original.

____________________

What you'll need:

2 c whole wheat orzo
4 c summer vegetables, diced (summer squash, zucchini, eggplant, sweet peppers, red onion, mushroom....whatever you have on hand)
2-3 tbsp. coconut oil
salt to taste
lots of fresh cracked pepper
1/3-1/2 c fresh grated parmesan, or other hard cheese

____________________

Preheat oven to 350* and bring a pot of salted water to a boil.

Arrange veggies in a roasting pan, top with coconut oil, salt, pepper. Roast for 20-30 minutes, or until tender.

Meanwhile, cook orzo.

Combine all prepared ingredients in a serving dish. Top with grated cheese. Serve with a side salad, or sliced summer tomatoes.
