Was feeling a quick, super savory dinner with minimal dishes and this really did the trick👌🏼 Will definitely become a part of your weekly rotation. It’s also packed with veggies and perfect for a fridge clean out meal. Counting down until I can have leftovers for lunch tomorrow… ⏳
One Pot Sausage and Veggie Orzo
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 yellow onion diced
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1 lb Italian sausage casing removed
- 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 1 zucchini diced
- 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes chopped
- 4 cups spinach or two large handfuls
- 1 cup uncooked orzo
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 3 tbsp parmesan cheese plus more to top
- 1/4 cup fresh basil
- Balsamic glaze
- Salt pepper and red chili flakes to taste
Heat a large skillet over medium heat.
Add the onion and garlic and sauté for 2-3 minutes.
Add the sausages and break them up with a wooden spoon or masher.
Once browned, add in balsamic vinegar and bring to a simmer.
Add in the zucchini and sauté for 3-4 minutes.
Add the sun-dried tomatoes, orzo and spinach.
Stir to combine then pour the broth in. Bring to a boil, turn the heat to low and cover.
After about 12 minutes or when the liquid is absorbed and the orzo is cooked, remove the skillet from heat and serve. Top with basil, parmesan and balsamic glaze.
