Simply delicious and a pretty and colorful addition to the dinner plate. I left out the mushrooms and corn but this is not a significant deviation from the intent of this recipe. Until the last minute I was going to shy away from the jalapeno thinking it had no place here. While it provided no heat (which comes from the seeds and membrane) it did just enough to enhance the flavor. Measuring the ingredients isn't necessary and would take away from the simple joy of preparing this recipe if you did. I love herbs and spices but I disagree with those who said this was bland and required the addition of herbs. What's important is the wine the garlic and the wonderful combination of colorful fresh vegetables. These are simple fresh flavors--not bland flavors that need doctoring. Perfect as written this was also the perfect complement to the grilled chicken and patty pan squash we served with it. Read More

This recipe makes a lot of food so expect leftovers! It's also pretty bland but perked up after I added a bit of rosemary and thyme. Read More

This is incredible! If you don't like spice leave the jalapenos out and you will not miss out on the flavor. Try using squid instead of the orzo. Sounds strange... but it's delicious. Read More

I thought this was very good. It's a rather simple recipe in that it doesn't have many flavour add ins with herbs etc. however I think this recipe is a great side that will nicely complement many main attractions. The jalapenos add a nice kick and all of the wonderful veggies in there make it colourful and delicious. The white wine adds a subtle flavour that I definitely would not omit! Good job ty. Read More

DELICIOUS!!! I was looking for a recipe similar to one I had at a restaurant and this was amazing! I added 1/2 cup of fresh cream to make it more sauce-y I also substituted chorizo sausage for the hot peppers and I served it over raviolis. I'm definately making it again! Read More

Very good and good to look at too. Have been trying out different orzo recipes since discovering this little pasta. If it is too bland for some they could add more jalapeno but I like being able to taste the different ingredients it's a fresh appealling summer salad. Goes great with grilled steak or chicken or fish. Read More
