      Very tasty and simple dish to prepare. Browning the orzo first gives it a wonderful flavor! I omitted the carrots, and cut the brocolli florets into small pieces since I thought it would be easier to scoop up with the orzo. I zapped them in the microwave for a few minutes to soften them before adding them to the rest of the dish. I also left out the marjoram, and added a bit of Paul Prudhomme's "Vegetable Magic" to give it a zesty zing. I served it with seared tuna. Perfect!

      This was just OK for us. I followed the recipe exactly as written. Everyone tried it but no one was thrilled with it.
