This is a good recipe for a one-dish supper after work or when you're pressed for time. This is adapted from a BH&G recipe booklet that came with my West Bend electric wok. "Rosamarina" is also known as orzo. If Rosamarina (orzo) or ditalini are unavailable, you may substitute another very small pasta.

This was very good, a wonderful weeknight dinner. I had some leftover grilled chicken breasts that I cut into cubes to use for this recipe, which made it even quicker to prepare. All the vegetables made a nice, colorful presentation.

this was excellent!!!!! the different textures just burst in your mouth! havent used orzo for a while, forgot how good it is :) I didnt have ground red pepper, so I used chili flakes, and "canned green chilli" isnt common here, so I used a tablespoon of pickled jalepenos, whch has been sitting in the fridge for ages, (cause they were so hot) but they were perfect in this dish. I used chopped skinless thigh meat, but other then the changes mentioned, I followed the very easy to follow recipe and will definately put this one in the favourites box! thanks mersaydees!
