Orzo Pasta Salad

Whats’s Spring without a lovely cold orzo pasta salad. It pairs so well with yummy good like ham (perfect for an Easter dinner). I usually only eat cold pasta salads in spring and summer, definitely not winter. This was a lovely salad for it used fresh spinach and Parmesan cheese, mixing it from the usual feta and orzo. Hope you like it!
