Really simple and very yummy. Used lemon juice since I didn't have an actual lemon. Would recommend to anyone. The one year old loved it and the three year old ate the orzo and said she was allergic to the colors green and red.
Extremely good and very easy to make!
This was really delicious and easy to make! My grocery store was out of fresh spinach the day that I shopped, so I had to use frozen (which I thawed and drained well first). It worked beautifully and was probably quite a bit cheaper. I also opted to use grated Parmesan instead of shredded because I had it on hand, and 1/2 cup worked well. Next time I will go a little easier on the garlic -- and there WILL be a next time because it was so yummy! It's a perfect side dish for grilled chicken or shrimp.
Delicious! I made it with just plain salted butter since I didn't have the olive oil butter on hand. Still loved it. My family loved it too. I sautéed some shrimp in a bit of garlic, olive oil, white wine, and lemon pepper to top it off.
Delicious and a big hit! Served as a side along with steak for a casual diner party. Everyone loved it, even my husband who doesn't even like spinach and tomatoes!!!
It can be a side or a meal in my opinion. Definitely try this one! (especially when tomatoes are in season...yum!
