    From Best of Gourmet. This uses orzo pasta instead of the traditional rice. Quick and easy.

      This is a delicious recipe and very easy recipe. Plus I was able to use whole wheat orzo in the recipe. I served it with shrimp and peas.

      I really like orzo and risotto. This is so good. Another time I will try with cheddar cheese or a tasty cheese. Thanks Mary :) Made for Newest Zaar tag

      Yumm, a very tasty side dish made with things that I usually keep on hand. There is no end of the things that you could pair this. It would also make a great base to be used like a hamburger helper. Just make this recipe and add cooked chopped chicken with a vegetable for instance. Thanks very much Mary for a great tasting dish with so many possibility's. Made for Photo Tag.
