This was really yummy. I used rice instead of orzo, and it still cooked great. I also left out the bell pepper since I'm not a fan of them. The only bummer was that cooking the rice with the peach juice didn't get as much of the peach flavor that I thought it would have. I might throw in a splash of soy sauce next time for a little extra oomph

My BF is a sucker for any savory dish containing fruit so I had to try this out. We've made it several times and it's so tasty. I love using orzo pasta and this is a good excuse to do so. Give it a shot of you like savory/sweet combos.

This was an interesting dish. My roommates all loved it, but I think next time I make this I will be substituting apricots instead as I didn't care for the peaches as much as I thought I would. Thank You for the recipe.
