    Vicki in CT's Note:

    This low cost yet delicious side dish is perfect with chicken and fish dishes. Can also be a vegetarian main course. You can cook the orzo in veggie or chicken stock if preferred.

      Super simple and delicious! We used it under a spicy egg and tomato dish and loved every bite. I'll be making this again with some garden kale! Made for ZWT6 by a Looney Spoon Phoodie

      Oh boy, I love asiago and spinach together! Then spinach?! Oh a recipe made in heaven! The pine nuts on top sent this over the edge, and very welcomed! I did add salt and pepper to taste, and was so lovely! We have fresh spinach coming from the garden, and this was a perfect use. Made for Zee Zesties! for ZWT6

      A very simple dish, which I truly appreciate. I'm trying to go back to basics a little bit, and this fit the bill nicely. I cut the recipe back by half, but left the spinach the same. Can't have too much fresh spinach! I thought the addition of the asiago was was a good touch. I, also, toasted the pine nuts before adding them. And I used a LOT of black pepper! Thnx for sharing your recipe, Vicki. Made for a fellow Voracious Vagabond during ZWT 6.
