orzo with roasted peppers and goat cheese


i found this on wolfgangpuck.com and then while making it changed it around a little. it is delish and a little time consuming but that is why it is wise to double the recipe. this can be used as a side or a main dish. i didn't include cooling time for the peppers, that would be about 20 minutes.
