Spinach and Parmesan Orzo Pasta

This was absolutely delicious. I made it as a side to go with our grilled steaks. It was so tasty.

4 tbsp butter, divided
1 c uncooked orzo pasta
14 oz water
2 tsp chicken bouillon
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 bag baby spinach
1/2 c Parmesan cheese
Salt & pepper , to taste

Melt 2 tbsp butter in a medium skillet over medium high heat.  Add the orzo & stir until lightly browned. Add the water & chicken bouillon. Bring to a boil. Cover. Reduce heat & simmer for about 15 minutes or until the orzo is tender & liquid is absorbed. While the orzo is cooking, prepare the spinach. In a large skillet melt 2 tbsp of butter. Add the garlic & sauté for about 1 minute. Add the spinach & a pinch of salt. Sauté until the spinach is wilted. Remove from heat. When the orzo is done, add the spinach & Parmesan cheese. Add salt & pepper to taste.
