Memorial Day weekend is almost here. This weather in Philadelphia needs to start getting warmer so we can start to enjoy BBQs. In our house we grill all year around. I love to create different sides for our BBQ dishes. This one I think is by far one of my favorites. It’s a super easy and delicious orzo pasta with sweet corn and asparagus. The dressing is light and fresh. I hope you enjoy.
