This is a simple elegant pasta side dish that pairs nicely with seafood, such as our Baked Shrimp with Tomatoes and Feta.

    Pretty good! I used frozen green beans. Frozen veggies love in that bright green color, flavor, and not to mention nutrition. It also cuts some of the time out. I also added a tablespoon of cream cheese at the end while it was still piping hot. I just added a tad bit of a creamy flavor.

    I love this recipe along with the shrimp dish. I used to make this often for parties and then my Everyday Food mag was lost. I am so glad it is available online.

    I used asparagus instead of green beans. The orzo was a bit bland but mixed well with the shrimp meal... I know this would defeat the purpose of a health side but I feel butter would be better than oil...

    A perfect side dish that's easy to prepare and - seemingly - more "elegant" than other traditional sides. I made this tasty dish to serve along side pork chops marinated in Italian dressing (overnight). Easy and delicious!
