     Creamy Spinach Bacon Orzo

Category   Entrees - Maindishes
Sub Category   None
Servings   6

6 strips bacon, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup onion, chopped - optional
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp Italian seasoning
1 cup uncooked orzo pasta
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
2 cups spinach tightly packed
salt & pepper to taste

Cut the bacon into small pieces and fry it in large skillet until crispy. Add the garlic, Italian seasoning and orzo to the pot. Leave the grease in the pot (if you have an excessive amount you may want to drain a little off with a spoon). Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring often.
Stir in the chicken broth and cream. Once it starts bubbling, continue cooking for 10 minutes uncovered, stirring fairly often. You will want to turn the heat down a bit to medium or medium low. It should gently bubble not furiously boil. If the mixture is too hot, too much liquid will be absorbed before the pasta is ready.
Take the pot off the heat, stir in the parmesan and spinach, and cover the pot for 3 to 5 minutes or until it has thickened up to your liking. The orzo will absorb the liquid quickly, so if it still seems like there is too much liquid just wait a bit longer. Season with salt and pepper as needed.
