    KauaiCarolAnn's Note:

    Really easy and fast for a great weeknight dinner for two. Can easily be cut in half for one or as a side dish. Substituted spinach for asparagus one's a pretty forgiving dish.

      Indeed, simple, quick, colourful and delicious. Orzo is not too common here, in the end I had to settle for risoni, much the same. A good supper dish, DH commented on how nice it was and he is often not too fond of risotto-like dishes, this, however, went down well. Thank you carolAnn, made for PAC Fall 2012
