- Melt butter in a stockpot over medium heat. Add carrots, scallion, and garlic; cook and stir until scallion is soft, 1 to 2 minutes. Pour in chicken broth; bring to a boil. Add pasta and cook, stirring occasionally until tender yet firm to the bite, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir in spinach; cook until tender, 2 to 3 minutes more. Season with salt and pepper.
- Cook's Notes:
- Use margarine in place of butter, if desired.
- Use any small pasta shape or rice instead of orzo, if desired.

The flavor is great! The method however needs some tweaking. Carrots take much longer to soften than a couple of mins. I suggest sauteing them on med-low heat for at least 6-8 mins on their own ...
Good, fast, easy and low in calories. I used fresh spinach, increased the carrots and added about 1 tsp. of sugar, 1/2 tsp. of vinegar and 1/4 tsp. of thyme leaves. Will make again for sure.
I used rotini noodles instead of orzo and vegetable broth instead of chicken broth. It's a quick to make, great tasting, healthy meal! My husband and I love it!
I made it exactly the way it is written and it turned out great! VERY flavorful and easy. Thank you so much for the recipe.
