OK, finally got around to making this for dinner.

Not bad at all.

I did alter the recipe a bit. I added 8 ounces of sauteed mushrooms, a green and red pepper, and about 20 ounces of browned ground turkey (that I had to use before it went south on me).

All in all, pretty darned good.

Oh, I also added some basil and oregano to give the tomato base some extra seasoning. Not much, though. Just enough to give a hint of flavor.

Making this one again for dinner and for lunches this coming week.

Again, if you've not tried it, it's really good.

I STILL can't find orzo in my local stores so I'm using small shells. They work just fine.

I'm also adding browned ground turkey, sauteed mushrooms, and a bag of chopped spinach.

You're too much like me in the kitchen.  Yes, I see your recipe, but that's suggestions, or a starting point.  Any resemblance between the original recipe and my final product may be limited to the name.
No, I'm not mtnbkr.  ;)

I've had the left overs for lunch all this week. It just keeps getting better and better. Really enjoy this recipe. Very simple, very easy to make, and very adaptable.
