Simple dish, easily and quickly prepared, that can be served on its own for a complete meal. Orzo pasta resembles a short grain white rice, but takes less time to cook.

This is one of my favorite dishes. I have found that bow-tie pasta works as a good substitute for the orzo as it holds the ingredients together better and makes the dish a little more substantial as a main dish rather than a side.

This was great! I altered it slightly: I added a small can of mushrooms (drained). Since I didn't a bag of frozen mixed veggies, I used a small bag of frozen peas. I didn't have tarragon, so I added some basil, onion salt and pepper. Very satisfying.

I did not care for this dish at all despite being a fan of black beans, orzo and veggies. The seasoning was off - no depth of flavour and the dish was dry and lifeless. Not a favorite for sure.
