This was a solid, simple recipe that was still a lot of fun to make. Toasting the orzo was almost theraputic (the stirring). Tasted great and I would definitely make this again. Leftovers reheat very nicely and are really tasty. I did sub veggie stock (as that's what i had) for the chix stock. Also, I deglazed the pan with the broth before I added all of it & the orzo in to loosen the yummy browned bits from the bacon/onion saute! I think next time I might add a few less peas and begin browning the bacon by itself a few minutes before the onions are put in for some extra crispiness - but these are personal preferences only and the recipe works as is. Great addition to my anyday cookbook. Thanks for sharing this with us Dancer^!
