1/2 cup uncooked orzo
2 (6-ounce) salmon fillets (about 1 inch thick)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
Cooking spray
2 cups torn spinach
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/4 cup chopped green onions
4 kalamata olives, pitted and chopped
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese


1. Preheat broiler.

2. Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat.

3. Sprinkle salmon evenly with salt, oregano, and black pepper. Place on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Broil 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness. Let stand 5 minutes; break into bite-sized pieces with 2 forks.

4. Combine pasta, salmon, spinach, and remaining ingredients in a medium bowl; toss well.

for your toddler: Omit the black pepper from the fish. Toss a spoonful of hot orzo with a small handful of torn spinach until the spinach wilts and the mixture is cool. Shred a small amount of salmon and add it to the mixture. Add olives and cheese, if desired.
