I've made this recipe several times, but with brown rice since I just never have orzo around. And usually slivered almonds instead of pecans. The flavors are incredible, and I've used this recipe as a base for other food items. I turned it into a sort of casserole for Thanksgiving last year, for example, and everyone raved about it!

I made this using whole wheat orzo and it turned out great. I used slivered almonds instead of pecans. The cranberries and lemon juice add a special zing. It's really delicious warm or cold. I'll definitely make it again!

I have made this several times now and I think it is a new go to side dish. I used brown rice instead of orzo. I toasted the pecans (enhanced the flavor). I think what I like the best is that it isn't too much more work than plain rice, but wow what a difference it makes!
