Simply delicious, and a pretty and colorful addition to the dinner plate. I left out the mushrooms and corn, but this is not a significant deviation from the intent of this recipe. Until the last minute, I was going to shy away from the jalapeno,thinking it had no place here. While it provided no heat (which comes from the seeds and membrane) it did just enough to enhance the flavor. Measuring the ingredients isn't necessary, and would take away from the simple joy of preparing this recipe if you did. I love herbs and spices, but I disagree with those who said this was bland and required the addition of herbs. What's important is the wine, the garlic, and the wonderful combination of colorful, fresh vegetables. These are simple, fresh flavors--not bland flavors that need doctoring. Perfect as written, this was also the perfect complement to the grilled chicken and patty pan squash we served with it.

This recipe makes a lot of food, so expect leftovers! It's also pretty bland, but perked up after I added a bit of rosemary and thyme.

This is incredible! If you don't like spice, leave the jalapenos out and you will not miss out on the flavor. Try using squid instead of the orzo. Sounds strange... but it's delicious.

I thought this was very good. It's a rather simple recipe in that it doesn't have many flavour add ins with herbs, etc. however, I think this recipe is a great side that will nicely complement many main attractions. The jalapenos add a nice kick and all of the wonderful veggies in there make it colourful and delicious. The white wine adds a subtle flavour that I definitely would not omit! Good job, ty.

DELICIOUS!!! I was looking for a recipe similar to one I had at a restaurant and this was amazing! I added 1/2 cup of fresh cream to make it more sauce-y I also substituted chorizo sausage for the hot peppers, and I served it over raviolis. I'm definately making it again!

WOW! My family love, love, loved this dish. Nice color and great flavor. We served it with broiled cod fillets. Wonderful dish! Will make again and again.

My sister-in-law brought this recipe as a dish to pass. I enjoyed it very much. I have always been a fan of orzo and this is a great way to serve it. I shared this recipe with my friends.
