One of our top 10 trends for 2011, fregola sarda is a tiny toasted pasta from Sardinia. Look for it at your local Italian grocer.

Yield: 
6 servings
Ingredients: 

1 package (usually 1 lb. or 450 g) fregola sarda*
Zest and juice of 1 large lemon
1/4 cup good quality olive oil
1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
1/4 cup fresh mint, chopped
1/4 cup fresh chives, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste

* You may substitute orzo or Israeli couscous.

Instructions: 

Step 1: Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add the fregola sarda pasta (or your substitute pasta) and cook following the package directions — and your tastebuds — until al dente. Most brands cook in about 10 minutes.
