A tasty, simple to make side dish with great Mediterranean flavours. I added a little extra white wine. Served it with BBQ pork souvlaki!

This was pretty good, but admitedly I altered the recipe to suit my tastes. I like wine for drinking, but have never cared for it's flavor in food so I left it out. I know it's supposed to end up a "Pilaf" but I followed the recipe as is except for the wine, and after it was cooked I substituted 1/3 cup of white wine vinegar for the wine I left out durring the cooking phase. I stirred the vinegar into the already cooked pilaf and chilled it. Thus serving it as a salad instead.

Outstanding! The orzo was still a little creamy which reminded me of risotto, but a lot less trouble. The flavor was great. The whole family had seconds. I served it with a grilled pork loin rubbed with Mean's fennel seasoning. What a meal! Thanks for sharing this creation. We'll definitely make it again.

I really enjoyed the mix of flavors in this dish. I used a red wine rather than white, which gave it a bit of a darker color, but thought that the taste was very appealing. I served several different dishes tonight, and DH polished this one off in to time!
