Orzo With Tomato and Fried Tofu

I'm always on the lookout for a good vegetarian entreé, and since I love orzo and tofu I tried this recipe. My son is not too fond of feta cheese so I left it out of his portion, but the rest of us enjoyed it just as written. Note: after making this a few times I decided to try goat cheese and it was really good -- my son even liked it!
