    I was a good recipe. Pretty simple to make.In my opinion it needed a little bit more seasoning and was kind of dry.

    I'm always looking to expand my vegetarian dishes and this one looked delicious. It did not disappoint, but I made a few additions. It wasn't as "saucy" as I thought it would be, especially after I added the orzo, so I added about 1/2 jar of red pasta sauce. This was also a good addition because I thought it lacked a little flavor, and there weren't enough tomatoes. I didn't have fresh basil, so I added about 1/3 cup pesto which kicked up the flavor as well. I would cut back the orzo to 1/2 cup next time, as I served with the polenta as recommended, but leftovers w/ the full amount of orzo will be great. Definitely a keeper!
