Ingredients

  • 1 lb 1 ground beef *or you can use ground Italian sausage, ground turkey, or ground chicken as a substitute*

  • 1 1 yellow onion, diced

  • 1 tbsp 1 minced garlic

  • 2 tsp 2 salt

  • 1 tsp 1 pepper

  • 1 tsp 1 onion powder

  • 1 tsp 1 garlic powder

  • 1 tsp 1 dried basil

  • 1 tsp 1 dried oregano

  • 1 cup 1 uncooked orzo

  • 1 cup 1 beef broth

  • 14 oz 14 tomato sauce

  • 1 cup 1 heavy cream

  • 3/4 cup 3/4 water

  • 2 cups 2 fresh chopped spinach

  • 1/3 cup 1/3 parmesan cheese

Directions

  • To a large Dutch oven or pot on the stove add the ground beef and onion, break the ground beef up and crumble with a spatula or meat masher, cook the meat through. Once cooked remove any excess grease in the pot.
  • Now add in the minced garlic, seasonings, and orzo stir well for 15 seconds.
    Add in the beef broth, tomato sauce, and heavy cream stir well. Let simmer for 3 minutes *stirring often* so the orzo doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot.
  • Stir in the water, chopped spinach, and Parmesan cheese, let simmer covered with the lid for 10 minutes *stirring occasionally so the orzo doesn’t stick* until the orzo is cooked through and tender. Enjoy!
