“This was modified from a recipe that I got from Celestial Seasonings. Boiling the orzo in peppermint tea really gives the pasta a minty flavor, and a slightly brown look - like it's made from whole wheat pasta. I loved going out to my new garden and picking the fresh herbs for this recipe and loved the way they tasted in this very fresh tasting pasta salad. A note of warning though, this makes 8 meal-sized servings, not side dish servings.”
