      Thanks for sharing this recipe, it is SO GOOD! I followed your recipe exactly, except I cooked mine on low for a lot longer. Without the Parmesan it tastes nice, but mellow; with the Parmesan it is perfection! My entire family loved this soup, thank you. Note: I just sprinkled the cheese lightly in each individual bowl, rather than in the pot.

      Simply delicious. I used a vegetarian broth and added a spoonful of white balsamic vinegar to give the soup a bit of tang but otherwise followed the recipe as written. I enjoyed the texture of the orzo 'beads' in this soup.
