Orzo Chedder Tuna Spinach Casserole

Okay, I made this today on the fly. Here is what I did:

-Cooked orzo as per instruction
-In a separate pot, added milk, butter, 1 tsp of dijon and some nutmeg (bring to a boil), add flour and then grated chedder and mix until thick (cheese sauce)
-Open and drain a can of tuna
-Wash some spinach.

When the cheese sauce was done, I added everything in an mixed.

So delicious.

Although, next time, in a separate pan, I would fry the spinach with some green onions and some celery before adding it. since it will be more soft and wilted.
