Recipe Ingredients

Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup
diced onion
1 cup
sliced mushrooms
1 tablespoon
freshly minced garlic
10 oz.
of baby spinach
4 tablespoons
butter, divided
1 cup
uncooked orzo pasta
1 can
(14.5 oz.) Low Sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup
grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions

1
In a large sauce pan, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in a medium skillet over medium high heat and add 1 cup orzo.
2
Stir until lightly browned.
3
Add chicken broth and bring to a boil. Cover. Reduce heat and simmer for about 15 minutes until the orzo is tender and the liquid is absorbed.
4
In a large skillet, add sausage and crumble over medium heat with a potato masher until fully cooked, about 5 minutes.
5
Add onion and mushrooms and continue to cook until onions are translucent and mushrooms are tender.
6
Add garlic to the pan and sauté 30 seconds or until garlic becomes fragrant.
7
Turn heat down to low.
8
Add spinach and cover pan to allow spinach to wilt. Set aside until orzo is done.
9
When orzo is done add the sausage mixture and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese and mix well. Give it a taste and adjust the seasonings as needed. The Parmesan will add some saltiness to the dish, so be sure to give it a taste to ensure you don't add too much salt!
