Very good quick wholesome meal! Perfect quick meal for just ds and me when dh isn't home for supper. I used the colored orzo and instead of carrots (out of) used a chopped red and a green bell pepper. I was also out of green onions so used chives instead. Very pretty and delicious too! Thanks for sharing!
