Basil and parsley, plus a generous dash of lemon, help perk up the flavors in this pretty and appealing side dish from Dorothy Smith of El Dorado, Arkansas. Starring both pasta and potatoes, it's a hearty choice to round out almost any menu.
A little peppery heat warms up this tasty and versatile veggie-and-orzo side dish from Sam Stusek in Annapolis, Maryland. “I often substitute a variety of our favorite seasonal vegetables and it's always delicious,” he notes.
