Ingredients

  • 2 ½ cups orzo pasta
  • 1 cup asparagus
  • 2 cups mushrooms
  • 2 cloves of garlic (minced)
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 cups baby spinach (coarsely chopped)
  • 1 cup freshly grated parmesan
  • Salt
  • Ground black pepper

Method

  • Heat the olive oil in a pot over medium-high heat (until it simmers). 
  • Add the asparagus and mushrooms until fragrant (around 10 mins).
  • Add garlic and orzo and sauté for 1 minute (season with salt & pepper).
  • Add the vegetable broth and milk until it boils.
  • When boiling, cover and reduce the heat until it simmers.
  • Stir orzo occasionally until it is al dente (most of the liquid will be absorbed & a creamy sauce should have formed).
  • Add in the spinach and parmesan until the spinach wilts.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Taste, serve & enjoy!
