This one pot Orzo Pasta Salad with Chicken Sausage is perfect for BBQs, potlucks, and parties. Serve it as a side dish or a light lunch or dinner.
In a large pan or pot, add a little oil and saute garlic, onion, mushroom, peppers, corn, beans and chicken sausage over medium high heat for 5 minutes.
Add uncooked orzo and 1 cup broth. Bring liquid to a boil and cook 3 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and cook 5 more minutes, stirring frequently.
Add spinach and remaining 1/3 cup broth and cook until wilted- about 2 minutes.
Remove from heat and stir in tomatoes and feta.
Serve cold (or warm/room temperature if desired).
Feel free to add extra vegetables or chicken sausage if you want.
To make it vegetarian, sub beans or tofu for the chicken sausage.
