    Manami's Note:

    I found this on and then while making it changed it around a little. It is delish and a little time consuming but that is why it is wise to double the recipe. This can be used as a side or a main dish. I didn't include cooling time for the peppers, that would be about 20 minutes.

      We loved this recipe! We substituted farfallini for the orzo (due to the price) and it worked just fine. Next time we are going to experiment with adding grilled eggplant to give it just a little more umphf. It was very easy to prepare.
