"This is a great side dish-very tasty and easy to put together. Since I only had baby bella mushrooms, I used them instead of white button mushrooms-they worked great. I also added some freshly grated Pecorino Romano cheese on each serving. The pilaf was delicious. I'll definitely be making this recipe again."

"Quite tasty but nothing mind blowing. Made it with maccaroni as I had no orzo at home."
