Bland and needs some healthy fat to lower the glycemic load from the empty-carb pasta. Submitted by:

We made this with chicken less strips from Trader joe's - very tasty! I was hesitent at first not having been able to cook orzo as well,this time however, it was perfect, Oh skipped the capers to reduce sodium and topped with steamed broccolini!! Submitted by:

We enjoyed this but it was a little bland. Pepper and salt helped. I like the idea of a little parmesan sprinkled on. I will try that next time Submitted by:

Everything Mediterranean is good. Is the USA the only FAT country in the world? As food gets more and more expensive will we challenge the others? Submitted by:
