Ingredients

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 cups orzo

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

6 scallions (white and green parts kept separate), chopped

2 zucchini, diced

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint

3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

Directions

  1. Bring a medium saucepan of salted water to a boil. Stir in the orzo and cook according to package directions for al dente; drain.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the scallion whites and zucchini; cook, stirring occasionally, until the zucchini is tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the orzo, scallion greens, parsley, mint and 1 cup water. Simmer, uncovered, until the mixture thickens slightly, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Top with the feta.
