Mediterranean Orzo with Tuna

Serves 4:

1 16 oz package orzo (or other pasta shape of your choice)

½ stick butter

¼ cup olive oil

I can albacore tuna, packed in water – do not discard the water

4 cups fresh spinach

Juice and zest of 1 lemon

1 cup Kalamata olives, sliced

2 Tb capers

8 oz feta cheese, diced or crumbled

Salt and pepper

¼ cup chopped fresh dill or 1 tsp dried

Cook the orzo according to package directions — usually about 8 minutes or so until al dente, and drain.

In a saucepan, melt the butter with the olive oil, add the tuna along with the water it’s packed in, and simmer for about 4 minutes. Add the spinach and continue cooking until it has wilted. Add the lemon juice, Kalamatas, capers, feta, salt, pepper, and dill, and cook for a few more minutes until the flavors have combined.

Toss with the pasta and serve.
