Great side dish! I added 1/4 cup of toasted pine nuts, but other then that left everything the same. Thanks for another great recipe kittencal!

Outstanding. Had it with roast chicken. Added a little of the herbed, seasoned chicken drippings as I was a little short on chicken broth...Yum! Used fresh thyme to season the roast chicken as well as the orzo. Will make this again & again.

Another WINNER from Kittencal!!! I had never had orzo and this one looked exceptionally good since it has CHEESE in it, lol...Very delicious side dish!! You are missing out if you don't try it! No need to change a thing! Thanks Kittencal!!

Oh Kittencal, you deserve all these accolades and more! I made a few substitutions -- olive oil for the butter, 3/4 of the onion rather than the whole thing, and a generous hand with the spicing -- and this was phenomenal with baked parmesan fish. Just wonderful!

This was really good. I left out the pepper and the coarse pepper and then found out that it is too bland without it. That goes back to making the recipe as written the first time, right? I ended up adding them at the end and we loved it.

My family cannot get enough of this! I did make some changes - I added fresh oregano, chives, thyme, and sage from my herb garden. I added in with the butter and onion instead of the dried thyme. If you have a fresh herb garden, try this. The flavor and smell are amazing! I could stand and smell this cooking for days!
