Saucy Italian Orzo for the Whole Family

I found this recipe a few years ago in an issue of Simple and Delicious magazine. It's definitely a family favorite. It's easy to make (only need 1 pot) and super healthy. It's a great meal the whole family will enjoy. You can serve this to your little ones starting at 9+ months.

Here's what you need for 4 to 6 servings:
1 lb ground turkey
1 large onion finely chopped
3 garlic cloves minced
2 cans (14.5 oz each) diced tomatoes (no salt added)
1 can chicken broth
1 can tomato paste
3/4 to 1 cup uncooked orzo
1 tblsp Italian Seasoning
2 cups chopped baby spinach

Put a little oil in a dutch oven or large deep skillet, cook the meat, onion and garlic over medium high heat until meat is no longer pink. Stir in the tomatoes, broth, tomato paste, orzo, and Italian seasoning. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until orzo is tender. Add spinach cook and stir until spinach is wilted. Serve and enjoy! (Serving size for your little one is between 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup)
