I made this as written and it turned out more like sauce with orzo than an orzo based dish. I had to then had to put everything on hold in order to make up more orzo (doubled it in the end) to balance it out. The flavor is good and it comes together easily.

Lovely sweetish (no sugar) orzo. Went down the treat with Balsamic Chicken Livers.

My kids inhaled this stuff, and it's the first orange veggie I can tolerate (love the greens, hate the orange) so it's a keeper. Used water because I was out of broth, otherwise followed the recipe. Doubles well too!
