      I knew this would be good, but it was even better than expected. I served this as part of a Greek buffet meal. I doubled the recipe and even so, none left over. I will make this again next week, it's that good, with a baked chicken. Thanks for the recipe.

      Fantastic flavored rice/orzo dish!! I made this as written with a couple of changes. I made it using beef stock, forgot to check what I had on hand, and added regular onion to the oil first, then added in the garlic, rice and orzo, then followed the rest. I added the parmesan cheese on top and think I need to start adding that to all my rice dishes!! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT 9.

      This was similar to a side dish which I've made for years but with the addition of the herbs which I thought were a great addition. I subbed a little sautéed onion and fresh chives for the green onion. Made for ZWT 9 Greece by one of "the Appliance Killers" - thanks Mikekey for being the "Mike and .... "!
