I would definitely make this again. I used a mixture of cremini and white mushrooms and would add more next time. It needed more broth, so be sure you have at least 4 cups on hand. It reheats much better than rice risotto.

What a quick risotto clone! Delicious and on the table in minutes. The sherry provides a terrific flavor. Delicious as a side dish with schnitzel, with or without the mushrooms.

A great side dish. I halved the recipe and substituted a dry white wine (which I always have!) for the sherry. Used canned beef broth for the liquid. Will make again. Orzo is a quick side dish that adds flavor and distinction to any meal. I served with meatloaf and a salad!

This is a family favorite - kids love it too. I also use about twice the mushrooms it calls for. Love it.

Really really excellent! I'm using it as a side dish and this is my first attempt at a orzo/risotto type dish so I am very excited about the outcome. I did take heed and used 4 cups of broth instead of 3 along with the 1/2 cup of dry white wine. I also substituted a tablespoon of the butter with olive oil. I will be making this again.
