A splash of lemon and shower of chopped parsley make this orzo one of my family's most requested springtime sides. It's fantastic with chicken, pork and fish, or you can eat it on its own as light lunch. —Leslie Palmer, Swampscott, Massachusetts

"Nice, easy side dish. I toasted the orzo first for a bit more flavor."

"Nice and light. Assembled quickly. "Lemon" in the name is a bit misleading. There was only a slight hint of lemon in the overall flavor. Nonetheless, a keeper."
