  1. cook the bacon and keep aside
  2. saute the onion and garlic in olive oil for 5 minutes then add the veggies and herbs
  3. add the tomatoes and simmer for 10 min, then add the bacon
  4. boil the orzo till al dente then mix with laughing cow cheese
  5. then add the bacon and veggies this is so tasty
