    I cut out the lamb (vegetarian) and substituted fusilli for the orzo as it was available on hand. I divided it up to take to work and can definitely say this is one of the best meals I have ever had for lunch! - 7/13/09

  • this meal was absolutely DELICIOUS... I have 3 young children and they all enjoyed it very much.. and we had leftovers and it warmed up nicely for lunch also... I will make this recipe again :) -- only thing is I substituted the lamb and used ground turkey instead - 8/13/09

  • this was really really good! i had no lamb, so i used lean hamburger meat. couldnt find any orzo around here, so i bought whole wheat angel hair pasta. i fixed the rest of the recipe as stated, and boiled the pasta. then i served the egglplant mixture on top of the pasta. it made alot. - 7/21/09
