This was amazing! Right before I took this off the heat, I added some chopped red onion. So great. I marinated some chicken tenders in red pepper marinade and baked them and served it over the orzo. My husband loved it and so did I.

Great recipe, the whole family loves it. I used parsley instead of basil.

I LOVE this dish. My mom cooked orzo for us when we were kids and she still does! I added diced black olives and diced red pepper to this, as well as olive oil. YUM!

Delicious! Went perfectly with grilled steak and a green salad tonight. I love how fast it all came together with very little work. Definitely adding this to the regular rotation.
