"Very good side dish that was pleasing to everyone's palet. Easy peasy which will now be a part of my regular repertoire. I tasted it before adding the basil and parmesan and even then it was fabulous, but basil and parmesan added another dimension of flavor. Thank you breezermom for sharing. Made it for PRMR."
"What a wonderful dish...we loved it...so easy to prepare...I served it with salmon and broccoli...it's a keeper...=)"
"Excellent quick & easy side, especially with a garden full of fresh basil. I decreased the cheese a little, and doubled the basil. Was wonderful with grilled chicken!"
"Great recipe. My kids love it. Served it with fish and garlic green beans."
"Very simple and absolutely delicious, I could have eaten this by itself but served it with creamy garlic shrimp, yum, we really enjoyed this decadent dinner! A real keeper, thank you, breezermom! Made for I Recommed tag game."
"This is very yummy. I like orzo and this recipe is so good with the parmesan and basil. Very quick to make. I'll be doing it again this summer with fresh basil. Thanks Breezermom :) Made for The Count Dracula and His Hot Bites for ZWT7"
"Great! Can't ask for anything more than simple and tasty. Thanks breezer for yet another nice keeper. Made for ZWT7 by an Emerald City Shaker."
"This was great. Used as a side for grilled sausage! Made for ZWT #9 and the Saucy Silverados."
"Thanks for a lovely simple side dish, tasted great and I think even a splash of wine would be great in this too, thanks for posting!"
"This was not only a real easy recipe to make last night, but we absolutely loved this. I made this as posted except added a tad mozzerella to this .. Into the keeper file this goes. Made for Zaar Stars."
"This is a very nice side dish, that is really easy to make and delicious too. I simmer this for 10 minutes then stirred the orzo. An additional 5 minutes of cooking and it came out perfect. Zaar Stars Tag Game (July '10 - Sept. '10)"
"Great side dish; creamy, smooth and subtle flavour! Made for Zaar Stars!"
"What a wonderful side dish! We absolutely loved this and it got eaten up quickly. The portions are very generous but I'm not complaining! I made the recipe as directed except that I chopped the basil. So very very good and we will be making this often for sure! Made for Holiday Tag. Thanks breezermom! :)"
"This really was a great side-dish for pretty much anything I sauteed it with two garlic cloves and some paprika for extra flavor, and because I love garlic in almost everything. Only other changes I made were using dried leaves of basil (that's all I had in the house), using less of it, and adding some mozzarella in addition to parmesan. Delicious! Thanks!"
"Creamy and fantastic!"
"This was creamy and good! This is only the 2nd time I made orzo and loved that it was not all dried out like rice gets. I did cut back a little on the basil (family request). Will make again! Made for 1-2-3-Hits March 2010."
"Yum! Everyone had seconds."
"Absolutely fabulous dish! Creamy and delicious. Made for Everyday Holiday Tag. :)"
"This was truly quick and easy and very tasty. It reminds a little of risotto but is faster and easier to make. A great side dish! Thank you, breezermom!"
