I love how easily and quickly this came together. I left out the garlic and found the dish to still have plenty of flavor, although I do plan to add the garlic next time. Thanks for sharing!

I used frozen spinach as I save the raw baby spinach for my green smoothies (yum!). Otherwise I followed the recipe and it was sooo good! I will definitely make this again. I used my newly purchased potato ricer to squeeze out the liquid from the thawed spinach and it worked great!

Great recipe, I didn't have basil so I omitted. I did however add some crushed red pepper flakes and doubled the fresh parmesan. My husband doesn't like spinach but liked this, I used fresh spinach. Thanks..

This is an excellent recipe. I used a 10 oz box of frozen spinach that was defrosted, squeezed dry and added the last 5 minutes of cooking. In place of basil I used oregano to complete the Mediterranean flavor. This was served as a side with Greek Pork Tenderloin Medallions.

I followed the recipe exactly and it was SUPERB! I used the fresh spinach but next time I'll try the frozen since I have so many in my freezer when they go on sale. I'm so glad I have leftovers that I can eat tomorrow. Thanks for making orzo very, very tasty!

Absolutely de-lish! I used fresh basil...very nice touch. I oly had 1 c. of chicken broth, so I substituted 1 c. with veggie bouillion. It was great. And it's a nicely presented dish,colorwise. Thanks!!

I made this with a 10 ounce box of chopped spinach. I think it's pretty good however I think the whole box was too much and may be a problem for those trying to feed people who are less than enthuastic about eating their vegetables. I will make this again with suggested amount of fresh spinach to compare.

Delicious orzo! Made as directed using one whole 10 oz bag of fresh spinach. Had a plenty of flavor for so little work. Was a nice departure from the same old side dishes... this one is a keeper!

This was excellent - so flavorful & easy! I also liked that this was something a little different than the usual side dish. Will make again for sure!!
