I actually made this as a main dish for my daughter. I added in some basil and oregano and only used the juice of half a very large lemon. I also sprinkled some parm over it just before serving. My daughter liked this and said she would definitely eat it again but did say she would like a little less lemon juice next time. Thanks.
This recipe has it all. Great taste low fat easy to prepare ingredients most cooks would have on hand and colorful in appearance. You could easily substitute other vegetables. Thanks for a great recipe!
8/15/07 original review Wow so good! I didn't have any orzo so I substituted acini de pepe which I had left over from making italian wedding soup. Everything blends together so well; this is a refreshing side dish. Thanks AMULHERN. EDIT I made this again using orzo and also added a bit more garlic. I love this dish and found the leftovers are just delightful too!
I used maybe 1/4 cup of white onion I omitted the garlic (but used a couple shakes of garlic powder with the salt and pepper) and I added 1 stalk of celery chopped and cup or so of broccoli florets. And this turned out just okay. My husband was not thrilled and my daughter wouldn't touch it (although she enjoyed the plain buttered orzo I saved for her). Once we added some soya sauce to our plates this dish was MUCH better. It saved the recipe.:) Thanks AMulhern you made me aware that I could interchange rice and orzo sometimes!
