I liked it very much, my husband thought it was a litle bland though...

Veggies and carbs...the perfect balance of foods for thought.

Quite by accident I pre-cooked (boiled) half of the orzo before reading that it was to be sauteed, but I liked the variation in the textures between the two when combined. Also added red pepper just because it was around and getting soft, extra garlic because I'm conditioned by now to do so, and some extra fresh herbs. This is a definite repeater! Note: If you decide to do the split cooking method (boil half/saute half) remember to keep the cooking water to replace the water in the saute method portion for extra starchiness.

This was very good. We love orzo and enjoyed this flavor. I added parsley and basil.

Very nice recipe, I agreed with another reviewer and threw my my green onions in with the carrots as well. Everything turned out nicely and it made a nice side dish. Thanks for posting.

Sometimes you can just look at a recipe and know you are going to love it and that was exactly the case with this recipe. I have eyed this up for months and finally gave it a try and boy am I glad I did. I only made two changes. The first was to use low fat margarine instead of butter and that worked wonderfully well and cut a lot of fat. The second was with the green onions. I don't like raw onions at all. So, I put them in at the stage where the carrots and orzo were added and they ended up being beautifully done and really added to the taste. I loved this dish and it will be in my regular rotation. Made for Cookbook Tag.

I was looking to use up some orzo, and it just so happened that I had every ingredient available at home so I picked this recipe! Was I pleased with the way it turned out. It had a mild and slightly sweet taste. I recently threw out my food processer so I used a mandoline to julienne the carrots. I used less butter and subbed vegetable broth for the chicken broth since we are vegetarians. Thank you for this contribution to a delicious dinner:)

I used shredded carrots and left out the garlic and cheese. Added about 4 tablespoons green onion. I didn't have fresh Rosemary so I added a little of dried. Thanks for posting the recipe.
