Mediterranean Pork And Orzo With Spinach

I love this recipe.  It’s quick and easy to create, leaving a lot more time to relax afterward.

  • Servings: 4
  • Hands-on time: 15 min
  • Total time: 20 min

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound pork tenderloin
  • One teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 1/4 cups uncooked orzo
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 5 ounces fresh spinach
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

Directions

Prep:

  1. Boil water for pasta.
  2. Cut pork into 1-inch cubes and rub with pepper.
  3. Cut tomatoes in half.

Make:

  1. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add pork; cook and stir 8-10 minutes or until no longer pink.
  2. Meanwhile, add orzo and salt to the boiling water and cook for about 8 minutes. When done, drain and return to pot, toss in spinach.
  3. When pork is cooked add tomatoes to the pan with the pork and heat through.
  4. Toss everything together and top with cheese.

Notes

This incredibly simple dish is shockingly good! We kept wanting to add something more to it, but it doesn’t need it. If you are a veggie lover you can definitely add in more spinach.
