This Creamy Tuscan Orzo is an easy one pot recipe that’s full of flavor and super satisfying.

Filled with sun-dried tomato, spinach, and Parmesan cheese in a creamy sauce, this orzo recipe works as either a side dish or a main course.


– Salted Butter – Garlic – Chicken Broth – Italian Seasoning – Orzo Pasta

In a large skillet over medium high heat, add the butter and garlic. Cook while stirring until garlic is fragrant and lightly golden brown.


Add the sundried tomatoes and spinach, cooking until the spinach is wilted and shiny. Stir in the orzo, chicken broth, Parmesan cheese, and salt and then cover with a lid.


Reduce the heat to low and cook the pasta at a low simmer, stirring every 2–3 minutes.  Cook the orzo until the cheese is melted, there is no more liquid, and the pasta has cooked to al dente - about 8-9 minutes.


Remove from heat and stir in the cream, then cover with a lid for 2-3 more minutes. This will allow the pasta to soak up the rest of the liquid.


To finish, top with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and fresh minced parsley and serve warm. Enjoy!
