Fixed this last night with Sole Provencal#408567 and a green salald with Auntie Ann's Lip Smackin' Homemade French Dressing - Longmeadow#284322. What a wonderful dinner. I cut the recipe in half and used fresh spinach and about 2 Tbls. fresh minced onion instead of the onion powder and sauteed them with the fresh garlic. Then I added the mixture to the cooked orzo. Yummo! Made for New Kids on the Block Tag game 2010.
