viachicago's orzo pasta salad

One of my favorite summer dishes is an orzo pasta salad. It may be served warm or cold. Here's a general guideline to the recipe. I usually just eyeball everything.

1-1/2 C uncooked orzo pasta
1 C frozen peas, thawed
1/2 C crumbled feta cheese
2 teaspoons lemon juice (fresh is best)
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
Italian dressing to coat
Black pepper and oregano to taste

Boil the pasta for about 9 minutes and then add the frozen peas to thaw out in the pot as well, for 1 additional minute. Drain. Toss orzo and peas with Italian dressing. Stir in cheese, lemon juice, zest, and pepper.

Mmm I need to make some. It's delicious.
