Very tasty with the following changes. I sauteed cubed chicken breast in garlic, salt and olive oil beforehand. I added mushrooms to the recipe and sauteed them in olive oil, garlic and wine and then added the spinach and artichokes. I used marinated artichokes and added the liquid from the jar to the mix. Then add the cooked chicken and 1/2 to 3/4 of a package of dry italian dressing mix. This is key! Simmer for a few minutes before adding it to the orzo, pancetta and pinenuts. You don't need to necessarily add the balsamic vinegar at the end because there is tons of flavor but it is personal preference. Serve with grated parmesan cheese and YUM you've got a winner!

This was tasty and easy. Way too much orzo though. Cut that in half. This recipe makes more than 4 servings.

I just finished eating this for dinner. It was very good. I only used half the orzo the recipe called for and cooked it in chicken broth for added flavor. I used marinated artichoke hearts instead of plain and rough chopped them to make the pieces smaller. I used chicken broth in place of the wine and it was still tasty. My husband is eating a second helping right now. I will definitely make this again using the changes I made. Thanks for a great base recipe.
