Orzo with Spinach and Pine Nuts


Stuck in a rice and pasta rut? Orzo is a great alternative, and this dish is delicious hot or cold. Make up a batch for dinner, and enjoy it straight from the fridge for lunch the next day.


- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 ¾ cups chicken broth
- ¾ cup uncooked orzo (rice-shaped pasta)
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1 cup lightly packed chopped fresh spinach
- 1/2 cup feta cheese

- 1 tablespoon pine nuts, toasted

Pour olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic, and sauté 1 minute. Add 1 ¾ cups chicken broth, orzo, and salt, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low; cook 13 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Stir in spinach and remaining ingredients.
