I love this... today is the first fall-like day in Kentucky, and I decided soup would make a nice dinner....looked at recipes. I didn't have broccoli, or orzo, but I used "star" pasta in place of orzo. It's so good I've already eaten and my family isn't even home yet. You're one of my favorite recipe-posters, Dancer, so thanks again.
