      Wonderful! Easy to make and tasty! I used chicken broth with herbs and used Parmesan-Romano cheese. I also added Rosemary. Served with grilled steak last night. I also threw in some cooked frozen green peas and carrots.

      I would never have thought of this combination - it was delicious! Other than scaling the recipe in half, I made no changes and served it with fish & broccoli. Thanx Chia!

      I thought this was great and my picky husband didnt complain so five stars! I omitted the onion (picky husband), used a can of Campbell's chicken broth and added water and bouillon granules to make 2 1/3c (I halved the recipe for just the two of us) and used a generous pinch of Herbs de Provance and a tsp of fresh chopped parsley. The only complaint I would have is the directions say to saute the onion and then rice/orzo over high heat. This will burn your butter and orzo. I prefer to use medium heat, it takes a bit longer, but you will not burn the pasta and all pieces get evenly browned. I also omitted the cheese though it would probably be yummy.
