  1. Yup, that’s right – but the “GF” designation means “Gluten Free” in other words, (usually) a rice based version is called for here. But it’s totally optional 🙂 I’ve made it several times without either the GF orzo or the rice, it’s really the pesto that makes this soup great.

  2. Yes, regular orzo pasta does, that’s why we put ‘GF’ before any ingredients that can contain gluten – and to let you know that there are gluten free options available. There is a company that does make gluten free orzo if you have access to it, otherwise you can just substitute in rice.

  3. Frozen or fresh shelled peas. Green beans can be frozen or fresh as well.
