This is both tasty and pretty. Kale might be good in place of the spinach.

A quick and easy recipe that's tasty too. The amount written here only fed 2 of us! Could feed 3 if served with bread or salad. Used rice instead of of orzo pasta, and used a lot more mint (we like it!). Otherwise as written. Good recipe - we'll use it again. Thanks.
