      I thought the recipe was very good. However, it lacked a little zip so I added 2 tablespoons of drained capers and it did the trick. Yummy! I agree that you could use less butter for health sake without losing much flavor but I use the full amount for special occasions.

      What can I say? Next time I can only fix half the recipe so I will only eat half as much. Wonderful! I toasted the pine nuts and next time I will reduce the butter in an effort not to have so much at one sitting. In my defense, I did use the plant based "butter".

      This was great! I altered the recipe for 2 servings and then added about 3 Tblsp. more orzo and then didn't have to drain the broth it just thickened into the orzo. I didn't have pine nuts, so I toasted slivered almonds. This is a keeper. Great for a potluck. Thanks!
