Loved the toasted flavor this has. Served with blackened salmon and broccoli. Yum! Made for ZWT#9 2013 by one of the Hot Stuff team.

This was a quick and easy side dish. I made a third of a recipe. Would have enjoyed it more with a bit more flavor. Perhaps it needed a bit more salt and pepper. Thanks for sharing. Made for Best of 2013 tag.

This was the perfect side dish to Baked Fish Salonika #503644. I needed an orzo that didn't have its own strong flavor and this was perfect. Very tasty and nice with the fish. I will make this again. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
