    Super-easy to make and I would definitely make it again! I did cook it for approximately 10 minutes and then another 5 after adding the vegetables though.

    The Parmesan made this dish delicious. I was using my gas stove and will need to use a lower temperature next time - a fair amount of orzo was stuck to the bottom of the pot.
