Greek Whole Wheat Orzo

There’s not too much involved with this side dish, but it is doesn’t skimp on yumminess (Yep…new word)!

It’s super simple and very quick to put together in a hurry. It’s especially convenient for me because I always keep our house stocked with fresh spinach and tomatoes (when they’re in season…sun dried if they’re not), feta cheese and orzo.

Not much else to say, other than you should totally bookmark this recipe for your next fix-it-in-a-hurry-weekday-meal!
