CARROT AND ORZO SALAD WITH FRESH DILL

Makes 8 servings

Ingredients: 
• 3 lbs. carrots, peeled and sliced diagonally into 2-inch pieces
• 5 large garlic cloves, unpeeled
• 1/4 cup olive oil, divided
• 1 lb. orzo pasta
• Juice of 2 lemons
• Zest from the 2 lemons
• 4 scallions, white and light green parts only, chopped
• 1/2 cup loosely pack fresh dill, chopped


Directions:
1.
Preheat oven to 450º F.

2. In a small bowl, toss carrots and garlic cloves with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Spread on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until carrots are browned and tender. Remove from oven and let cool for about 10-15 minutes.

3. Squeeze out pulp from garlic cloves into a small bowl and discard skins. Mash pulp with the back side of a spoon until it resembles a paste.
