Definately double the sauce and add some crushed garlic and a little white pepper to taste

I'm not a big pasta eater, but I could eat orzo or pastina anytime. Most of us only think of using fetticini with alfredo sauce so I was happy to stumble across this recipe. I doubled the sauce, used fat free half and half and much more cheese. We loved this Marilyn and the dish pairs very nicely with chicken franchese. Thanks!

Hubby's assessment is spot on: "Nondescript. Just orzo." This is sadly lacking in flavor, even though I used an herb medley orzo.
