Orzo with Vegetables

Sometimes, you get ideas for new dishes and start throwing things together. Sometimes it works and sometimes you go make something else.

This ended up tasting pretty much like what I had envisioned, and was really easy to make. You can substitute any small-cut pasta, and it probably tastes good with a flat pasta like linguine.

*3/4 C orzo
1/2 yellow onion, diced
1/2 C celery, diced
1 Tb olive oil
4 Roma tomatoes, diced
1/4 tsp dried oregano
salt to taste

1. In a saucepan, bring water to a boil and start to cook pasta.

2. In a skillet, sauté onion and celery in oil until onion softens, about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes and seasonings and cook until tomatoes start to soften, but are not mushy, about 3 minutes.

3. Drain and rinse cooked pasta and add to vegetables. Serve immediately.
