Hubby's remark at the dinner table was that this "needed something" and I agree. It needed the gorgonzola the recipe called for but I couldn't add because he doesn't like it. I didn't measure ingredients, just added to taste, and used chicken broth rather than vegetable. Three stars, average and kind of boring, the way I had to make it - and four stars had it been prepared the way the submitter intended with the gorgonzola.
This recipe was very good. I'm giving it 5 stars because of ease and taste and the versatility I can foresee with this recipe. Exactly as written makes for a lovely vegetarian meal. I have been wanting to make this for a while but Trader Joes has been out of Orzo and I kept forgetting to look for it at the regular market. Ok back to the recipe. I didn't have any veggie broth but I had chicken so I used that. It doesn't matter what liquid you use and the possibilities would be endless. The only other deviation was I didn't have Gorgonzola. I thought I did- we LOVE it but I only had Feta. So in went the Feta. All else I kept the same except I used tomatoes out of my garden chopped and not cherry but a tomato is a tomato right? It was delish with the Feta and I could see adding in Kalamata olives to it for more of a Mediterranean flavor. I think you could also use mozzarella cheese for more of an Italian vibe. I will be making this again with the gorgonzola for sure plus playing around with some additional flavors. Thanks for sharing.
Made it as the recipe called for except I couldn't find gorgonzolla cheese so used feta and used fat free chicken broth. It was WONDERFUL! My husband loved it! We'll make this again. One tip keep a close eye on the orzo. I turned my back on it for a couple of minutes and almost burned it!
Very tasty. I made a few modifications. I used mozzerella instead or gorgonzola and sage dill and chives instead of basil. I also only used a quarter of an onion which is good because the onion was STRONG. My housemates eyes are watering from the onion.
I used Roma tomatoes and chicken broth due to availability. Other than that I made this as written. I found that I like Gorgonzola cheese but it was too over-whelming in this dish. 1/3 of that amount would have been plenty. I didn't appreciate the flavor of th orzo as much once it was browned. It did brown very quickly too so be careful. I used 1 average sized red onion and felt like I could have either chopped it smaller or used less of it. I wish the author specified what size or a quantity of this ingredient to use. Because the flavor of the cheese was so overpowering I added some leftover chicken breast. This didn't help much. The next time I make this I will reduce the amount of cheese by 2/3's and possibly the onion as well. I will also not brown the orzo.
I tried it as written and I would give it a three. Made again we used feta instead and added just a splash of balsamic vinegar to the tomato mixture. Much better that time. The gorgonzola was a little strong for me too.
