    Muffin Goddess's Note:

    This is Rachael Ray's recipe for a great sidedish to use when you're tired of plain old rice (or if you just love orzo, like I do).

      We liked this a lot. I halved the recipe but used the whole amount of cheese, added about a tablespoon of light cream cheese and a splash of fresh lemon juice. I used vegetable broth, making it a vegetarian dish (for a guest.) The cream cheese made it creamy, the lemon juice made it bright! I had the leftover for lunch today with a little butter. YUM!

      This is a great recipe. I didn't have problem with the liquid. But we found that it needed more cheese flavor. So next time I'll add more parmesan. Thanks Muffin goddess :) Made for Count Dracula and His Hot Bites for ZWT7
