This side dish was awesome, cheap, and easy!! Just a few tips to really take it to the next level: While the orzo was cooking, in separate pans I sauteed a package of fresh, sliced mushrooms and a bag of fresh spinach (Used separate pans for each veggie). Once the shrooms were done I cut the larger ones down a bit, to allow them to be more spread out in the orzo. Once orzo was finished cooking I added the parm cheese (used a lot less, just kinda sprinkled, stirred, and tasted til I got to my liking. Another addition is I sprinkled granulated garlic in it (BE CAREFUL - A little of that stuff goes a long way, but if you just add a tad, it gives a yummy hint of garlic). Once the orzo was to my liking, I mixed in the cooked mushrooms and spinach and that was it!! Very easy and delish! I agree about the cooking time - it only took my orzo about 13 mins or so - don't overcook! No one likes a mushy pasta! Thanks so much for the recipe, its a keeper! :)
