Creamy Spinach and Feta Orzo

What’s rich and delicious but healthy too? Our creamy spinach and feta orzo that’s what! Perfect for weeknight with a salad or a lean protein-or both!

 


INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter, divided
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 shallots, diced
  • 1 zucchini, finely diced
  • 1 1/4 cup dry orzo pasta
  • 4 oz feta cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups LonoLife Chicken Bone Broth
  • 1 cup half & half
  • 2 cups fresh spinach, roughly chopped
  • 1/3 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

DIRECTIONS:

• Heat a skillet over medium heat and add the olive oil and 1 tablespoon of butter. Add the garlic, shallot, and zucchini and cook, stirring occasionally, until all the veggies are softened and lightly golden brown.

• Then, add the orzo to the pan and cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring frequently, so that the orzo is coated in the butter and oil. Add the broth and half & half to the pan, stir well, and bring to a simmer. Lower the heat to low, cover, and cook for 10 minutes.

• Remove the lid, stir well, and add the chopped spinach, basil, and feta. Cover and cook another 3-5 minutes, until the liquid is absorbed and the orzo is cooked all the way through. Stir in the remaining butter and parmesan and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve warm topped with more fresh basil.
