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.
The cooking of the veggies took away their fresh flavor. I believe this would have tasted best wiith raw veggies with the vinegar, olive oil, lemon juice and seasonings used as a dressing.
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!
We thought this was very good. Added some needed seasonings and sprinkled with a bit of parm. Thanks!
Excellent! My family loved it. I added a pinch of sugar to mild the taste a bit. It was also good as leftovers.
Yummy! I didn't have any balsamic vinegar so I added a a balsamic vinegarette dressing and it came out pretty good still.
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!
This recipe was OK, but nothing special. I cut the oil in half---glad I did or it would have been too greasy. I threw away my left overs.
