    This soup is wonderful, although when it’s done it’s not really a soup because the orzo has absorbed most of the water/chicken broth. You get a good portion for only 4 points. You can always add more broth and vegetables.

    Even though I am cooking challenged, I thought this soup was incredibly easy to make. I loved the taste — reminded me of spaghetti sauce because of the oregano and tomatoes. This has gone into the keeper folder. You may want to add water to this because as stated above, the orzo does take up most of the liquid.
