MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 13, 2014

"I cut back on the butter and used some good olive oil. I also freshly grated Romano cheese and used couple of tablespoons on cream. If only I had some fresh parsley on hand ... wonderful, easy side dish."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 6, 2014

"I had a half box of orzo in the cupboard that I wanted to use up & found this recipe on the fly. Very easy and very tasty."

"Can't go wrong with a garlic, cheese & pasta combo!! A great quick & easy side dish!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 7, 2013

"it will definitely be a repeated recipe. I cut the recipe in half, including the butter, and probably could have cut the butter down even more, and it was still delicious. I can't wait to heat it up for lunch and dinner tomorrow. I paired it with steamed salmon."
