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.
