  • Step 1
    Cook orzo according to package directions in a pot of well-salted water. Drain, toss orzo with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and spread out on a sheet pan to cool.
  • Step 2
    While the pasta is cooking, warm the remaining olive oil in a pan set over medium heat. Add the zucchini and peas, and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly softened but not mushy, about 5 minutes. Spread vegetables on the pan with the orzo and let sit until everything has cooled.
  • Step 3
    Toss orzo, cooked vegetables and tomatoes in a large bowl with the Cucumber Basil Ranch until evenly coated. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • Step 4
    Garnish with chopped fresh basil right before serving.
