Recipe by Diamond Dave

Years ago a friend of mine was a chef at a restaurant on Broadway in Saskatoon called Nino's. He used to make this soup, and I've tried several recipes over the years and they never really tasted close. I fiddled around with what I liked about other recipes and came up with this. Feel free to add more Orzo depending on your tastes, in our house there are hardly any leftovers. The recipe doubles and triples well.
