    vrvrvr's Note:

    A lovely side dish -- from "What's For Dinner" by Maryana Vollstedt. (Note: if you find your orzo sticking to the bottom of the pan after cooking, just remove from the burner and place on a hotpad with the lid on -- let it sit about 5 minutes, then stir.)

      Easy and tasty side dish! Was very creamy and would pair well with chicken. Really quite a pretty dish, too, with the fresh parsley. Thanks so much for posting this; will definitely make again!

      I agree, this is a lovely side dish. I followed the recipe except for the fresh parsley. I didn't have any so I used about a teaspoon of dried parsley. My husband and I could make a meal of this. Thanks for posting the recipe.

      This was quite good, but I think the cheese overpowered the other flavors (garlic, onion, parsley), even though I used a lot of garlic. I might try making it again with less parmesan or maybe even without it entirely. This is a nice side dish but can also just be a meal in itself.
