This was very tasty and paired quite well with Tweeky's Tomatoe-Crowned cod #35027. The only comment that I would have is that once I tossed the orzo with the mushrooms, I felt it a bit dry, so I added a bit of homemade chicken stock to give it a bit of body. Those of you not watching your fat content might try a bit of butter at the end- I'm sure it would be lovely. Thank you Nurse Di for sharing this tasty and healthy recipe.
