      This was so refreshing, lite and good. I couldn't find Orzo in our little grocery store but did find a pena pasta and used that. Other than that followed exactly and loved this yummy tasting pasta as a side with our dinner. Will be making often and once I find the real orzo in a bigger store using the real thing. Made for PAC Fall 2011
