My favorite dinner this month was super simple. I roasted some vegetables in the oven (I used grape tomatoes, asparagus, sweet onion, and green beans); tossed them with some orzo I cooked in vegetable stock; dressed the whole thing with the juice of one lemon, 1T olive oil, salt and pepper; and topped it with fresh basil and toasted pine nuts. Delicious and done in about 30 minutes.
