    Didn't have orzo so I used some egg noodles. Very flavorful. - 9/12/09

    I used real sausage for this because I had some and it's just okay. The feta overpowers everything else and the vinegar and oregano are lost. Probably won't make again. - 6/16/09

    Used chicken breasts with greek seasoning instead of the sausage, but this is a great recipe! - 3/29/09
