"We love orzo and mushroom so how could we not enjoy. The lemon zest and fresh lemon juice add a more delicate flavor which adds to all else. I omitted the parsley and thyme just not to my taste. We will definitely make again and again. I increased quantities to six servings and only wanted to have left overs so we'll have to make again real soon. Used baby portabellas sliced."
