    Quite simple but handy if you need to be quick or either serve it as a side dish for meat.

    About 3/4 of a cup of orzo. Had some sun dried tomatoes in seasoned olive oil, so used the oil to sauté the garlic and added some red pepper flakes too! Chopped up the sun dried tomatoes added with broccoli. Seasoned well with salt and pepper. This salad will be delicious hot or cold. I’ll add some parmigiana cheese when serving. Could add feta, maybe some black olives, Greek oregano for a Mediterranean flavor. Skinnytaste always a winner.

    It was really good; I added some lemon zest and lemon juice. I’d definitely make it again.

    This is a very light dish. I added about a 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese and my kids wanted more cheese.

    Easy to make needed more seasoning. We had sautéed mushrooms & onions in sherry for steak so we added a bit and it was fabulous

    I agree with the consensus that it is very bland, however I added some green chilies to try to add flavor.

    This was delicious! I may have missed something in the recipe because I accidentally used the whole box of orzo the first time I made it. It was really good, just light on the broccoli. The second time I purposely used the whole box of orzo and doubled up on the broccoli. It was a perfect ratio and I will be making this again. It’s so simple to make!

    It was very good just a little mushy. I don’t know if it was just me or the recipe, other wise very tasty.

    I had to add extra seasoning than what the recipe called for.

    Kind of bland, needs some more spice

    Delicious! Probably better as a side dish than main. For my taste, could use a bit more garlic than the recipe calls for...

    Delicious!! The kids loved it too! Made as written, though didn’t have cheese on hand.

    Good, needs more seasoning in my opinion but that could’ve just been me not being a good cook! ;-)...I will make again though, I just need to get the seasoning right!

    This dish was pretty weird. I was already wondering where the taste would come from since it only calls for garlic, salt, and water but I read some other reviews and decided to add some fresh lemon zest/juice and some seasonings and it was alright but I won’t make this again. There are way better, similar recipes out there.
