Here?s a quick and easy dinner idea for those busy weeknights. This spinach and orzo soup can be made vegetarian by using vegetable instead of chicken stock and is so easy. Your just 6 ingredients away from ?real fast food? that?s actually nutritious and filling. If you want to add meat to this dish, chopped boneless skinless chicken breast, or Italian chicken sausage would be a great addition. I used chopped Italian tomatoes in this soup that have added oregano, basil and garlic as a time saver. If you only have chopped canned tomatoes on hand, just add one teaspoon each dried oregano and basil, and an additional clove of garlic.
