Directions:
Melt 2 T. of the butter in a medium skillet over medium high heat and add 1 c. orzo. Stir until lightly browned. Add 14 oz. of water and 2 tsp. chicken base and bring to a boil. Cover. Reduce heat and simmer for about 15 minutes until the orzo is tender and the liquid is absorbed. While the orzo is simmering it is a good time to prepare the spinach. In a large skillet melt 2 T. of butter. Add 1 T. minced garlic and saute' for about 30 seconds. Add 10 oz. of baby spinach and a pinch of salt. Saute' until wilted. Set aside until orzo is done. When orzo is done add the spinach and 1/2 c. Parmesan cheese and mix well. Give it a taste and adjust the seasonings as needed. The Parmesan will add some saltiness to the dish, so be sure to give it a taste to ensure you don't add too much salt! 4 servings
