my kids just wolfed this down! we used fresh spinach and my kids begged me to add some mushrooms and garlic, the combo was just wonderful and although we had this as a side dish we all agreed we could easily make a meal out of it. i did double the recipe for the 6 of us.
This was delicious. I love anything with feta!!! I used fresh spinach because that is what I had and I probably should have used more, I always underestimate how much it shrinks. I also did not have any green onions so I very thinly sliced a small yellow onion I had on hand and sauteed until golden brown. I'm excited to try it as written but it was still delicious.
This was SO good! The combo of spinach, feta and dill, mixed with the orzo made a nice, refreshing taste to this side dish. I substituted a bunch of fresh, farmer's market spinach for the frozen called for and I added a healthy pinch of salt to the water while cooking the orzo, otherwise did the recipe as written. This satisfied the pasta/spinach and feta lovers in my family. Thanks Geema!
I added a star from my last review. I made this again using 1/2 the spinach and more onion. It was really delicious.
Loved this new way to serve orzo! Made the recipe just as is except with fresh spinach. The flavors are wonderful and the dill was a very nice complement when served along with baked salmon. Thanks for sharing!
This is a good recipe, but the flavor finished too quickly. I wanted to add a little something to bring up the flavor a notch and to add a bit more depth to the flavor. After fiddling with several add-ins, I settled on diced sun-dried tomatoes that were softened in olive oil, and then added a splash of basil oil to finish and sprinkled with chiffanade basil ribbons. There is just something about pasta and spinach that screams for sun dried tomatoes and fresh basil., and this just hits the spot. You won't be dissappointed, I promise. Was asked to by a caterer for this recipe!!!
Loved this! Added minced garlic and used dried dill. Perfect!
Yum! Easy great side dish or quick vegetarian meal :) Added a lot more feta because I love it (like jrusk). My box of frozen spinach was larger (I think 10oz?), so I used the whole thing. Added canned tomatoes with chilies (as suggested by another), added some squash that I needed to cook (diced), roasted some pine nuts and threw those in there too... DELICIOUS! I'll have to try adding mushrooms since I love those too! Thanks for a great recipe.
Delicous, and Easy... Thanks for the recipe
Very yummy! We ate it as a vegetarian main dish for four. I increased the feta to about 1/3 cup but otherwise made no changes. I had never tried orzo before, and I'm glad this was the first recipe I chose for it! I think that next time, I'll add some mushrooms and perhaps zucchini. Thanks for sharing!
