“Orzo is popular to Italy and to Greece as well. This is a great side dish, or do as I do, by placing roasted chicken on top. I have also eaten this room temperature, with some great Italian bread and a glass of white wine. (I said I have done it, not that I do it on a regular basis)! LOL! Enjoy! Note: to get more juice out of your lemon, roll it on your counter or cutting board, applying some pressure;it will yield more juice, or microwave it for about 10 seconds or so. This is a low calorie dish weighing in at about 250 calories.”
