Great at room temperature, this zesty pasta salad is perfect for a picnic, potluck, or buffet. It’s versatile, too—any small pasta works well, and you can swap out the basil for fresh parsley or cilantro, if you like.
Make Ahead Tips
The salad can be made up to 2 hours ahead and kept at room temperature.

Easy to make and tastes great - can't beat that. I think you can be a little more heavy handed with the hot sauce than 1/4tsp though.
What a fantastic salad. The crunch of the corn is perfect with the silky orzo. And I love the bite from basil and heat from hot sauce. It's delicious. You can read my full review at Taking On Magazines: http://bit.ly/1876wHv
I brought this recipe to a potluck and everyone loved it. Only dish that was completely gone. Next time I make it I am going to try adding some avocado right before serving. Goes well with the lime juice to keep it turning brown and bring more color to the dish.
