Ingredients

Salt and pepper
1 pound (2 1/2 cups) orzo
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 10-oz. package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1/4 cup grated Parmesan

Preparation

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add orzo and bring back to a boil. Cook, stirring often, until tender, about 7 minutes.

While orzo cooks, warm 1 Tbsp. oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and bell pepper and cook, stirring often, until tender, about 8 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook 1 minute longer.

Drain orzo and return to pot. Add remaining 1 Tbsp. oil to orzo and stir to mix. Stir in onion-and-red-pepper mixture and spinach. Season with salt and pepper. Stir over medium-low heat until warmed through, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle with Parmesan and serve.
