"Rice and orzo pasta merge with the flavors of onion and garlic to create this versatile side dish. Bulgarian feta gives the dish a decadent creaminess while spinach adds beautiful color. You can get Bulgarian feta cheese at most international grocery stores. Bulgarian feta is creamier than the Greek version which tends to be very dry."

chopped Bulgarian feta cheese
I give this recipe 5 stars. It is easy and wonderfully tasty.
Very tasty! The recipe was very easy to get together and had a nice balance of flavors. It was a great accompaniment to my grilled chicken. The only change I made was to use Greek feta because I could not find the Bulgarian feta the recipe stated.
I trids this because it had so few reviews but everyone loved it, and its awsome! Like some others, I just use greek feta that is easy to find in the store and it has great flavor. I did everything else by the recipie and decided to make a few changes: I thought it was too oniony, so I cut onion amt in half, also too wet from the onion so I used a paper towel to drain the onion a little but maybe cutting back on the broth would work too, also I prefer low sodium broth and then salt to taste at the table.
Forget about the Bulgarian Feta cheese! Don't let it stop you from making this great recipe. Use regular Greek feta cheese,and add in a little more butter if you are concerned about creaminess. Feta cheese does not melt well as well all know, so crumble it finely instead of chopping it. I also sprinkled mine with roasted pine nuts per my preference, but it was not necessary. The simplicity and great taste of this recipe is what makes it so special. Please give it a try.
Great recipe! It's quick, easy and flavorful.
