    this was pretty good. I did add some more salt, pepper and some minced onion based on previous reviews. Not quite worth the effort when I could just cook some chicken, cook some squash and make some pasta.

    A few minor changes- it was wonderful! I sautéed the orzo in butter first and then added the cubed chicken, a 1 1/4 c of water (chicken broth would have been even better)all of the cream cheese and veggies. It was a hit!

    I couldn't find orzo or Italian herb cooking cream at my store so I used vegetable rotini & Creamy Pesto instead. The tub of cooking creme wasn't enough & I was in a pinch so I added a little milk. It still came out very good. Loved the squashes with it. Will definitely try again & hopefully I can find those 2 ingredients.
