    IngridH's Note:

    From Food & Wine, March 2008- This is very easy to make, and yummy! If you like spicier food, use either a spicy italian sausage, or try adding some pepper flakes with the onions and garlic. I would recommend chopping the artichokes a little more finely, I found them to be too chunky as the recipe is written.

      This was really good. I used hot Italian sausage but did everything else as directed. I love orzo and risotto (other than the attention that it demands). I especially enjoyed the artichokes in this. Thanks so much IngridH for a nice keeper. Grandson kept 'sampling' when it was done and took most of it home with him, lol. Made for ZWT7 by a fellow Emerald City Shaker.

      Very easy and filling. I halved the recipe and omitted the peas (not a fan) and the chives (didn't have). I also threw in some mushrooms, which I cooked with the onion, and some diced tomato, which I added with the artichokes. Thanks for posting.

      Delicious comfort food. I actually used a mixture of italian sausage and already cooked, diced chicken that I had, and it was a nice mixture. I did have to add more liquid and cook my pasta a little longer. All in all, a tasty dish that I will make again. Thanks, Ingrid!
