Made this for dinner and it was delicious. Nice change on the dressing.

8 oz Orzo Pasta
1 1/2 cups part-skim ricotta cheese (I used regular)
1 cup light sour cream (used regular here too)
2 tsp lemon zest
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
3/4 cup fresh corn kernels (sliced from 2 ears)
1/2 med red onion, finely diced, rinsed and dried
2 cups shredded cooked chicken
1 1/2 cups halved grape tomatoes
1/2 cup thinly sliced basil

Cook pasta in salted, boiling water until tender to the bite 9-12 minutes. Drain and rinse thoroughly under cold water (can be made ahead and chilled - just add 1 tab olive oil)

In medium bowl, whisk ricotta, sour cream, lemon zest and juice, 1 tsp salt and pepper.(I used a little cayenne)

In large bowl toss together pasta, corn, red onion, chicken, tomatoes and basil. add dressing and stir to coat
