It’s summertime and the grilling’s easy. But what to do when you tire of caprese and potato salad? Look to Ina Garten for advice, obviously.

The contessa’s go-to pick for a summer side dish? None other than her orzo with roasted vegetables.

Here’s why, according to Ina: With pasta, feta, veggies and a simple lemon vinaigrette, it checks all the boxes for a balanced accompanying dish. “It’s an all-in-one side,” she says. Even better: It works year-round. “In the winter, I serve it with a rack of lamb but in the summer it’s perfect with grilled steak or chicken.” 

Ina, we live for nuggets of wisdom like this. Keep ’em coming.
