    I liove in the UK and have no idea what orzo is. Please could someone help. The recipe sounds great and I want to try it. Thanks! - 11/25/08

    Hi! Orzo is a very small pasta, about the same size as rice. Any tiny pasta will do. A tablespoon or two of Rrce would actually do, but it would be a bit different taste and texture! Enjoy! Kathy

    This sounds really good, but I have a question about amounts. Does it really say 1/10 cup of raisins and 1/2 ounze orzo? - 11/13/08

    yes, it really does. I had trouble indicating that there's just a scatter of raisins (high sugar) and orzo to add texture. I hope that helps -- it keeps the carbohydrates down, the texture interesting, and the emphasis on the vegetables. 1/10 cup is probably a tablespoon or so. Same w/orzo.

  • This sounds really good but does it really serve 8 people? It just doesn't seem like enough food. - 1/22/09

    Julie... thanks. I'll edit that. I'm sure that I made that comment because it really did take me 8 times through to finish it. But... I can see how it might be scant for some. Thanks.

  • I have a turkey carcass (that wasn't carved very well so there's still a good amount of meat on it) sitting in my fridge waiting to be used. I love the flavor combos in this and will definitely use it as a starting point! - 1/21/09
