Orzo & Spinach with a Kiss of Lemon

Submitted by: BELASARIA

Introduction

A great way to liven up spinach! A great way to liven up spinach!
Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    1/4 tsp salt
    1/3 cup uncooked Orzo
    1 9 oz package Frozen Spinach, no sauce
    1/2 TBS butter
    zest of 1 lemon
    0.25 oz freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Tips

I used the Parmesan as my "salt" to finish the dish but you can add more once served.

For a more citrus punch, add the juice of 1 lemon.


Directions

Fill a medium saucepan 3/4 with water and heat until boiling. Stir in salt. Add Add orzo and cook for 7 minutes for al dente, stirring occasionally. While orzo is cooking, microwave spinach according to package directions and thoroughly drain once cooked.

When pasta is done, remove from pot to drain. Add butter to pot and melt.The residual heat from the pot should melt the butter. Add orzo back to pot, stirring to coat. Add spinach, lemon zest and cheese, mixing thoroughly.

Serve immediately.
