This was ok. The sundries tomatoes gave the dish it's flavor, but the sauce was watery. I used whole wheat orzo, and that helped to balance the sauce. Next time, I'll try cooking the orzo like risotto, as suggested in the Jan/Feb 2014 issue. I served steamed broccoli with goat cheese and toasted pine nuts as the side.
