    Turned out kind of thick I felt like it needed less lemon and more spices

    Delicious lemon finish made this a quick favorite. We make it at least once a week for a relatively easy and high-in-leftovers meal. Highly recommended

    fantastic! I wouldn't change any part of the recipe. I'm not the best cook but I think it turned out restaurant quality

    I loved it! For extra protein I made 100 little turkey balls and added them in when the soup was done and topped with Asiago cheese Devine

    Easy and tasty! Even my kids approved. I used already cooked rice instead of orzo.

    Pretty good. I used rice in place of orzo for gluten free.

    Quite tasty! Good blend of flavours. I added some lemon zest and next time would use a little less orzo as it was a little thick

    Very good, but I might like it more without the lemon.

    So yummy. Changed recipe slightly (used an orzo/rice mix which i browned in butter before adding to the soup, added extra lemon, salt and cayenne) and it was delicious!

    Very good- I added some chopped, fresh spinach at the end and a drizzle of olive oil. I'll put more lemon juice and some zest next time!

    Delicious!! This soup is very well flavored and healthy as a bonus. It is also easy and fairly quick to make. :)

    This is a five star meal, a wonderful soup. I made it the week before Thanksgiving, and the rosemary, thyme flavor makes it a great prep for the big day 😉 I will make again all year round.
