    Really really good! Did half an onion and added some chicken. Delicious with a side salad and some garlic bread.

    Very tasty. However I only used half of an onion and that was still too much for us. Next time I will only use a quarter. Otherwise it was great.

    Life is short, season your food. That being said, it’s basically orzo Mac and cheese feat. spinach, which is awesome. 5/5 would absolutely smash again

    This is certifiably alright. It was received well at the dinner table, but I don’t see myself making this again.
    Great quick recipe, I also added mushrooms

    As said previously, half an onion was fine. I used yellow onion and liked the sweetness it added. I also added a bit more spinach. Creamy and delicious!

    Modified to add less onion (1/2 onion will do) but this recipe is great

    Couldn't find Orzo noodles so I just used pasta. It turned out really good I would definitely make again!

    Turned out great. I added shrimp and sundried tomatoes to make it more of a full entree and not just a side. Paired it with a house salad and the kids loved it. The directions were fool-proof.

    Yummo!! It was Delish! I undercooked the orzo, next time I'll only par cook it for 5 minutes though. Used shallots instead of onions, and used heavy cream instead of milk!! Shhhhhh I know super heavy, but it was yummy. Will be making this again!!

    I enjoyed this but my 2 and 5 year old were not impressed with the spinach. I'll try it again though.
