Seafood Suggestion: Simply Seafood® scallops
Nelson Crab® shrimp
Orzo, tiny rice-shaped pasta, is generally served as a side dish but by adding lots of spinach and a variety of seafood, you have a quick one-dish meal.
Drain the spinach in a colander and press it with the back of a spoon or squeeze it to remove liquid. (You should have about 1 1/2 cups.) Set aside. Bring 2 quarts of water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add the shrimp and scallops, cover and let sit off the heat until the seafood is opaque in the center, about 8 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer the seafood to a bowl and cover to keep warm.
Return the water to a boil and stir in the orzo with 1 teaspoon of salt, if desired. Boil uncovered until tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain. Cover and set aside if not yet ready to use.
Meanwhile, heat a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the pine nuts and cook, stirring often, until golden, about 6 minutes. Pour from the pan and set aside. Heat the oil in the pan, add the garlic and cook until tender, about 1 minute. Add the spinach and orzo and stir until heated through. Stir in the seafood, pine nuts and cheese. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve.
