Even though I had all my ingredients laid out and ready to go it wasn't until after dinner that I noticed the chopped green onion never made it into the dish. But this orzo was so pretty, so creamy and delicious, that the green onion wasn't even missed. I'm sure it would have been even prettier, with the contrast of the red pimiento, and even tastier, had I remembered to add it. What I DID think to do was add a little butter with the other ingredients, which made for a rich, velvety sauce. Whether you remember to add the green onion, whether you choose to add a dab of butter, this is just plain good, and went perfectly with the Grilled Garlic and Herb Shrimp and Dill and Butter Squash (both recipes also from this site) I served this with. I would NOT suggest, however, not including the pimiento, which really was a nice touch!
