      This is just excellent and sure feeds a crowd! It tastes much like risotto, but with zero work involved. I followed the directions exactly and used white wine.

      This was wonderful! I happen to have sweet vermouth and used that, and I just loved the blend of flavors. I know this'll be repeated many times.

      Tasty side dish, I used vermouth for the liquid, I had to add more chicken stock as it absorbed it all before the orzo was cooked. Lots left over for lunch tomorrow! Thanks for posting.
