Orzo Pasta Salad with Italian Sausage

This recipe is pretty versatile…because you can adjust the ingredients to your taste, or what you have on hand! It is always a favorite side, but the meaty goodness of our sausages can easily make this side a meal.  You can really add whatever you want for veggies or have on hand. Olives, capers, roasted red peppers, carrots all would be great additions. To make it even more of a meal 1 cup of cooked wild rice would really add some great flavor and texture.
