Stovetop, Frying pan


Olive oil
Meatballs (cooked)

Step 1

Heat a drizzle of oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Add the meatballs. Cook according to package instructions, or until they are heated through & brown on all sides. About 5-6 min. Transfer the meatballs to bowl.

Italian seasoning

In the same pan, add orzo, Italian seasoning, water (3/4 of a cup per serving) & salt. Stir & cook until most of the water is absorbed, about 5-7 min.

Reduce the heat. Mix in the spinach & heavy cream. Continue cooking & stirring until the orzo is fully cooked, thick & creamy. About 2 more min. At this stage, add your favorite seasonings to taste! We love oregano & chili flakes for some spice!

Step 4

Add the meatballs to the creamy orzo & mix it all together. Turn off the heat & stir in grated parmesan cheese.
