Let the fun and fresh summer recipes begin! This lemon zucchini orzo pasta salad is so good! It is light and refreshing when served cold, and satisfying when it is served warm. You can’t go wrong either way! I love cooking and baking with lemon, especially during the summer season. In this dish, the lemon flavor pairs really well with the red pepper flakes, garlic, and feta. Such an amazing combination. I love using orzo noodles with this pasta salad, but you could try using another type of small noodle and I’m sure it would be great either way. This would be a great dish to bring to a potluck!
