Once you make this you will definitely make it again. I used basil instead of cilantro and it was a great substitute! Onto my rotation it goes.

We loved this! The only change I made was to use basil instead of cilantro. Delicious with salad and Italian bread!

I used basil instead of cilantro and this wowed me at first bite! Probably my favorite orzo recipe so far. I saved it for future use!
