Orzo with Spinach and Asiago Cheese

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by ilenek

A good alternative to rice, and a nice side dish, especially with chicken or fish.

I thought this was very tasty! I ate it for my main dish, the rest of the family as a side. I agree with the previous poster that this barely makes 3 servings. I would double it next time! I also added pine nuts just because. Thanks for posting!
