    Well, thanks a lot Charmie777!! Your recipe just spoiled using any other kind of pasta in our pesto. The orzo is absolutely brilliant with this, as is the parmesan and olives. The ultimate comfort food. Thank you, (really!!!) for a great recipe and idea.

    This is a rich and tasty side dish. I reduced it to two servings and we still had some leftover. I used homemade pesto sauce. I think this would be good with ripe grape or cherry tomatoes added.
