Lovely recipe, easier than it first appears! I had smallish tomatoes, so used half a dozen. Rather than using a 1/2 pepper, I used the scooped out pulp from the tomatoes, cooking it with the orzo and seasonings. I loved the orzo mixture.. I had slightly more than I needed and just ate it out of the pan, sigh, so good.... :D I was pleased that everyone loved this, my children especially are not always so open to new ideas! DH would like this on the menu again soon, he pointed out that we still have tomatoes in the fridge! Thanks for sharing a lovely recipe!
This was very tasty. Made as directed and would make again. Thanks for posting!
Made this for my first personal chef gig. I had fresh tomatoes, (from my greenhouse) and fresh basil. This turned out beautifully~and truly delectable. Everyone enjoyed it, and requested this to be a part of their meals at least once a week. Filling, and healthy~this was easy to put together. I didn't have pine nuts, and did add some fresh peas along with the orzo mix. Thanks so much, mikekey!
I really liked this recipe, and it was a hit with my family. I did add more cheese, though, because I liked having that creamy taste.
