Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This was quick, easy and good. I used spaghetti, broken into small pieces, as I did not have any orzo. I put the onions, rice and spaghetti into the pan and cooked until they turned light brown before adding the other ingredients. Doing this shortens the rice cooking time. Will make again.

I used parboiled rice and it cooked up fantastic. Very tasty.

Can this be done in an automatic rice cooker?

I thought the rice was good. But I suggest cooking the rice a bit before adding the orzo. Or just add more liquid. The rice wasn't done in 30 minutes and it had begun to stick.

Orzo is rice-shaped pasta.

what is ORZO?
