Yesterday, I wanted to whip up a quick hot  lunch. Due to the steam I couldn’t get a focused picture, Hubster and I were too hungry to wait for it to cool down.

Spinach Tomato Orzo

Spinach Tomato Orzo

1 Tbsp. olive oil, 1 bag baby spinach, 1 clove garlic minced, 12 Roma tomatoes (I actually used grape Roma), fresh romano pecorino, 1 box of orzo, 1/2 c. cream, fresh ground sea salt, fresh cracked pepper

Cook orzo according to package directions. Slice tomatoes and set aside. In a sauté pan over medium heat, heat olive oil and garlic. Add spinach to oil until wilted. Add tomatoes just to heat. Remove from heat and stir while add creaming, salt and pepper. Pour sauce over orzo, and top with fresh shavings (or grate, if you prefer) of romano pecorino.

Serve hot!

Side dishes often make great lunches. Do you have a favorite side dish you eat as a meal?
