    I loved the flavors in this dish. The olives and lemon and tomatoes...all very good on the orzo. I just couldn't add the capers but know they'd add even another layer of flavor. I just can't eat them.

    Very good. Pretty spicy! 1 TBSP of Lemon Pepper is a lot! I used less and it was still too spicy. Better next day. I added some white wine And baby peas at the end.

    This was delicious. I used 1 can of diced tomatoes, kalamata olives, and chicken broth to make it a bit more saucy to put over the orzo. For the lemon-pepper seasoning, I used Penzeys' salt-free Sunny Spain seasoning.

    I was excited to try this recipe after reading the reviews. I was so disappointed in the lack of flavor even with substantial amounts of spices listed in the recipe. I added extra spice, lemon zest and lemon juice but still was so bland. I think using crushed tomatoes or tomato sauce may have helped. Will not make this again!

    This was so quick and so much flavor. I added fresh cooked spinach to my orzo to get more vegetables in. I also added white wine and a little chicken broth because my husband likes more juice. Look forward to making this again.

    Delicious! The whole family loved this. I used a can of petite diced tomatoes with a tablespoon of tomato paste instead of the fresh tomatoes.

    Absolutely outstanding ! And, get this, it is so easy to cut the recipe down for just one or two, which I did. And, I had no fresh tomatoes so I just used some tomato sauce, added when I added the water, just before bringing the mixture to a boil. From one field editor to another, a real thumbs up !!
