Greek Orzo Bake

Greek Orzo Bake created by flower7

I whipped this up one day to compliment some Greek BBQ chicken legs. This recipe is great warm or cold. It's also versatile, so you can add to it whatever suits your taste.

    It was delicious and very easy. I've already made it a second time and I'm sure I'll make it again.

    Very good. left out the tomatoes cuz I ran out, but still delicious. Added some lemon juice.

    Very good dish, easy to put together and takes additions/substitutions well. I added black beans for protein and used canned summer tomatoes (from our garden that I'd preserved earlier in the year) and it turned out really creamy. Very nice, a touch of butter goes a long way too.

    Mmmmm this is outstanding! I can't seem to keep out of it LOL I used 6 oz orzo, 7 oz sheep & goat's milk feta (nice & strong so using less than 1 cup was OK), red onion (because it needed used), and 9 oz strawberry tomatoes on the vine because of the issues with larger tomatoes right now. I tasted before adding salt & because of the feta it did not need any but I did add a generous amount of fresh ground pepper. Thank you so much for this recipe - I will be making it again for sure!
