      Delicious dish, Kozmic Blues! I really enjoyed the contrast of the sweet & crisp green beans with the salty sharpness of the feta, and the silky texture of the orzo pasta. I look forward to trying it in the winter with oven-dried cherry tomatoes and will let you know how it turns out. Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe!

      Very good. The adults really liked it. The kids didn't eat so much of it. They preferred the wheat rolls #137478. The only thing that was a problem with the recipe is that I didn't understand that the beans were supposed to cook with the tomatoes the whole time the orzo was cooking, so it took a few extra minutes at that point. Otherwise, it was a very beautiful looking dish. (It makes a lot!)
