      I had been looking for a recipe for J.Alexanders restaurants wild rice and orzo side dish...and this was pretty darn close( no basil in the restaurants). I served this as a side at a cook out for my sons college buddies, and this was gobbled down: a lovely change from the usual pasta or rice salad, visually appealing and a delicious blend of textures and flavour.

      My brother's girlfriend makes this and it is delicious. She uses balsamic vinagrette dressing instead of making her own.

      Excellent! I would double the sugar (1T. instead of 1/2), and definitely include the basil!
