Orzo Salad

I had a lovely delivery of Garofalo pasta a few days ago including this Orzo - a type I find impossible to buy here in North Cornwall. I decided to use it in a summer pasta salad including feta, roasted red peppers, courgettes and red onion, but you could quite easily substitute for other vegetables - tomatoes, cucumber etc. It takes all of 10 minutes to put together (and that includes pasta cooking time) so perfect for a hastily arranged summer BBQ!
