Won't be making this again-for one thing, I couldn't find farro anywhere in our city (not even in the organic section of the grocery store) and it wasn't specific about what kind of barley to use (quick cooking, medium cooking, etc.) I did use medium cooking but thought it was too chewy. My husband like it but when there are so many recipes out "

Loved it! Very easy and you totally appreciate having an herb garden when it comes to dishes like this! We served it with another of Giada's recipes--Lemon-Basil Potatoes but serving it over plain linguine would probably work as well."

We found it bland but thought if it was served with something acidic, like bruschetta, it would be a good deal. We will try again."

I found it a little too savory for my liking. It wasn't difficult to make but I don't think I'll make it again."

As Rachel Ray would say, YUMMO! I will definitely be making this again and the best part is that it's not anything that needs to be on ice, so you can take it to a picnic!"

I've made it as written & also with just the ingredients I had on hand (shredded Swiss, regular deli ham) and it's fabulous every time. I almost always serve it with some type of broccoli which makes it a well-rounded meal."

LOVED IT! My lobster tails weren't quite as big as what was called for, but they still offered enough meat and flavor. The kids were wary but in the end loved it just as much as my husband & I. There is a lot of stirring so make sure you have a glass of wine close by!
