Ingredients

  • 1

    cup orzo pasta

  • 1

    tablespoon olive oil

  • 2

    cloves garlic, minced

  • 1

    onion, diced

  • 1

    tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • 1

    cup milk

  • 1 1/2

    cups spinach, roughly chopped

  • 1/2

    cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Directions

In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions; drain well. Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and onion, and cook, stirring frequently, until onions have become translucent, about 2-3 minutes. Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Gradually whisk in milk, and cook, whisking constantly, until slightly thickened, about 3-4 minutes. Add spinach and cook until wilted, about 2-3 minutes. Stir in Parmesan until melted, about 1 minute. Add orzo and gently toss to combine; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Serve immediately.
