Excellent side dish. Made half the recipe, DH ate three servings and the last one before bed. Served with Balsamic chicken Thighs (71557).

I added a little pepper and other spices, but great recipe overall. Thanks for sharing ;)

Nice flavor, but milder than expected. 1 pound made enough to feed an army! I would say it was 12 servings, not 8. Next time I would decrease the orzo to ½ lb and increase the garlic. Despite using high quality parmegiano reggiano, it still needed quite a bit of salt and pepper. It was easy to prepare and worth making again with some adjustments.

This was awesome! We made it for dinner tonight, left out the mushrooms because we dont'like mushrooms, added some baked tofu and it was indredible. Oh, I also added a 1/2 cup of part skim mozzarella (because we love cheese) and used fat free 1/2 and 1/2 to cut down on some of the fat but it didn't detract from the taste at all! Thank you so much:)

Mmm! Mmm! Good! This was fantastic! Loved all the cheesey creaminess. I served it as a main dish with chunks of chicken in it, and a side salad.
