    This is a nice flavored pilaf that went really well with my Greek-themed meal. I love the flavors of the rice and orzo combined...very easy and tasty!!l

    I knew this would be good, but it was even better than expected. I served this as part of a Greek buffet meal. I doubled the recipe and even so, none left over. I will make this again next week, it's that good, with a baked chicken. Thanks for the recipe.

    Fantastic flavored rice/orzo dish!! I made this as written with a couple of changes. I made it using beef stock, forgot to check what I had on hand, and added regular onion to the oil first, then added in the garlic, rice and orzo, then followed the rest. I added the parmesan cheese on top and think I need to start adding that to all my rice dishes!! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT 9.
