I don't really make up recipes too often.
Pretty much, I follow the rules and stay on course.
But sometimes when the stars align and Venus is in the fourth blah blah blah...
Sometimes I just feel like wingin' it.
And sometimes, every so often, it's a hit.
2 cups orzo (I used the pretty tri-colored kind.)
2 T. extra-virgin olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 T. flour
1-1/2 c. milk
3/4 c. grated Parmesan
1 t. sea salt
freshly ground pepper to taste
3 cups fresh spinach
fresh basil for garnish
Boil the orzo according to package directions. Drain and set aside. In a skillet, heat olive oil. Add onions and garlic and cook until soft. Sprinkle in the flour and let it cook for a minute. Whisk in the milk. When thickened, add the cheese, salt and pepper. Stir in the spinach and let it wilt in the heat of the sauce. Mix in the orzo. Garnish with basil for a great lunch by itself or a nice side.
