Creamy Roasted Garlic & Spinach Orzo
Total TimePrep: 35 min. Cook: 20 min.
Recipe was great. I saw some reviews saying it was “heavy” so I roasted some sliced tomatoes tossed in olive oil & salt/pepper along w the garlic (naked cloves only in aluminum) 25 minutes. The acidity of the tomatoes brightened the dish.
I found this dish quite heavy so I added 1/4 more milk. I added lemon juice to try lighten the flavour and some parmesan cheese. It needed salt as I couldnt get that wow factor which I normally manage with other orzo dishes.
This is a very tasty and creamy recipe. It is high in carbohydrates , however, because of the pasta. The flavor is rich. I love the zestiness of the spinach matched with the Asiago cheese. I added fresh parmesan at the end.
I have to say this was delicious but too rich for my family. I have made it to take to carry-ins and I also switched from chopped spinach to chopped broccoli. It was great too.
