    What can be substituted for orzo?

      You can substitute for rice or barley, Cyndi. If you don’t like either, just leave out orzo completely.

    I want to make it, but we don’t eat pork, so I was wondering, what would the equivalent of those 3 Italian sausages be in pounds, so I could use some ground meat with Italian seasoning?

      Hi Juliana, I must say, I LOVE your name. Absolutely beautiful.
      It’s about 3/4 pound meat. You can even do up to 1 lb if you want it really meaty:).

    My hubby and I really enjoyed this soup. Simple and yummy! My kids didn’t like the ‘cucumber’ looking pieces that were flowing in their soup but ate it anyway. 😄Thank you for the recipe 🙂
