I kept to the recipe with minimal changes. Pesto is made with olive oil, so I didn't add any olive oil to the dish (this helped cut down on the calories). This was a fast lunch to make, and regardless of incomplete directions I figured out where the extra pesto was used. Please don't allow someone who rated this low (without making it!) dissuade you from trying this. It's quick, and it tastes good!

This was too bland and dry for our tastes. I ended up doubling the oregano and garlic powder and using way more pesto.

Made this dinner tonight and it was super delicious. We did make a few changes; fresh basil, fresh garlic, fresh shrimp, sundried tomatoes instead of red bell pepper and then added some chopped cucumber in at the end for a bit of crunch. This is a great base recipe. Will definitely make this again.

I'm really just delving into the world of "real cooking" and this recipe was perfect. Just the right number of ingredients and steps that I didn't feel overwhelmed. The end results were tasty, although I think next time, I'll cut back on the olive oil.

I used 2 pounds of large shrimp, 8 oz orzo and doubled remaining ingredients, with the exception of the red pepper flakes. Might use a bit more pesto next time. Family really liked it.
