Wow, KelBel, this was a great side dish. The flavor was wonderful. I made as posted and it was easy to put together and it cooked in no time at all. I will be using this recipe often. Thanks for posting a keeper!

I love orzo. At the last minute I decided to add the whole can of tomatoes (28 ounces). Cause my orzo was not tender and it began to stick to the bottom. I added also a little bit of water. I omitted the feta cause I didn't have and it's very good. Thanks KelBel :) Made for Zaar Star Game.

A fun new way to use orzo instead of rice! I followed the recipe exactly; the only thing I had to do differently was at the end of the covered cook time, I had to uncover and continue cooking until I got the right consistency. Perfect!
