Spinach with Orzo and Feta

Feta is a cheese that my kids would eat out of the container, if I would let them. They love it! Here is a good side dish from Everyday Food.

Coarse salt and fresh ground pepper.
1/2 lb. orzo
1 lb. spinach, trimmed and chopped
1/2 C chopped fresh mint
1/2 C crumbled feta chesse
1 to 2 TBSP fresh lemon juice
1 TBSP olive oil

1. In a large pot of boiling water, cook the orzo according to the package instructions. Stir in the spinach until wilted. Drain.
2. In a large bowl, toss the hot spinach and orzo with the remaining ingredients. Season with salt and pepper.
