Orzo Goodness

This is Mom’s soon-to-be-classic Orzo Salad, just a great. easy go-to salad for a pretty large group- or 3 days of hotly disputed leftovers!

1 pkg orzo (in the pasta section)
1 reg sized tub’o fresh spinach
1 sm tub of pesto-(we used Western Families)
roasted pine nuts- 12 pounds or slightly less.
grated parm

-cook pasta
-add pesto
-chop spinach into 2″ chunks and mix in just before serving
-top with grated parmigiana and pine nuts
-eat with abandon

    Sounds delicious! I should try this one. I have quite a bit of basil … maybe it’s enough to make myself some pesto.

    I especially like the ‘tub’ measurements – precision is overrated (especially when it comes to pinenuts!!)
