What is it with me and easy meals? I'm still trying to do the whole "no meat day" every week, so I was excited to see this recipe in my favorite site. It is really similar to a tortellini soup I've made before. While this is a really good quick meal, I think I'll stick with my tortellini soup (recipe soon to come!). (Btw, this makes a ton of soup! If I ever make this again, I'll definitely half this recipe.)
Spinach Tomato Orzo Soup adapted from babble.com
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
½ lb fresh spinach
1 – 15 oz can diced Italian tomatoes (with oregano and basil)
1 lb orzo pasta
8 cups of chicken stock
4 cups of water
Preheat a large soup pot. Drizzle with olive oil. Add onions and saute until tender. Add garlic and saute for 2-3 minutes. Add canned tomatoes, spinach, chicken stock, and water. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium.
Add orzo and cook for 10 minutes, or until orzo is tender.
