One-Pot Orzo with Sausage, Spinach and Corn

4 servings


30 minutes

total time


14 ounces mild Italian chicken sausage

½ medium yellow onion (chopped)

1 cup frozen corn kernels

1 cup dry orzo

3 cups low sodium chicken broth

3 cups packed baby spinach

¼ cup freshly grated parmesan

Freshly ground black pepper


Remove the sausage from the casing and add it to a heavy bottom sauce pot or Dutch oven.

Cook over medium-high heat for 5 minutes, breaking it up with a wooden spoon.

Add the onion and corn (no need to thaw) and sauté for 10 minutes.

Add the orzo and chicken broth, stir to combine then bring to a boil.

Reduce heat to medium low and simmer 10 minutes, stirring every few minutes and scraping the bottom of the pot to make sure the orzo doesn’t stick.

Remove from the heat, add the spinach, stir and cover for a couple minutes, until the spinach has wilted.

Top with freshly grated parmesan and black pepper, to taste and serve.
