Unfortunately, we didn't really like this (my husband especially). I used 2 tsp. dried thyme and 1 tsp. dried basil, and I think the thyme was the problem. However, it was extremely easy, and I would recommend trying it. No chopping!

After reading the reviews, I used wheat elbows instead of orzo. I boiled 3 c. water and only 1 c. of stock. Also, I used a 3.8 oz can of sliced black olives b/c thats what I had in the pantry. I love that most ingrediants were ready to go when I got home! I used basil,fresh thyme and garlic salt (not a full Tsp. since I realized that it was not powder as I was adding it) I topped this with Asiago...yum!

For a weeknight meal, this was pretty good. I don't like olives and didn't have capers, but it was still good. I added fresh parsley to the paste. Easy to make.

Nice flavours, fast prep...would be just as nice with other forms of pasta.

This was actually on the table in 20 minutes. We liked the flavors and it being so quick is a bonus for the days you want to cook a proper meal but don't have much time. I was surprised to see the amount of garlic powder after already using the fresh garlic and maybe skip that next time, mainly because I prefer fresh garlic and would add an extra clove. I'm sure this will be good with another type of pasta too, besides orzo.

I made this for lunch today and I really enjoyed it. I made pretty much as directed. I did use fresh tomatoes instead of canned and left off the 2 optional herbs.
