Heat a large 2" deep, stovetop pan with a lid to medium heat. Once the pan is hot add the oil and the diced onions. Cook the onions until soft about 5 minutes.
Next, add the water and the chicken base to the pan. Turn the heat up to high. Once the water is boiling add the orzo to the pan and turn the heat back down to medium.
Cook covered for about 6 minutes. After 6 minutes removed the lid and add the red bell pepper and jalapeno to the pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes stirring often to prevent burning.
After the peppers have cooked for a few minutes it is time to add the zucchini, chicken sausage, frozen corn, and spinach. Stir in these ingredients until well combined and the spinach has wilted.
Season with the black pepper and garlic powder, stir once more, and then cover with the lid and cook for another minute. This is simply warming the chicken sausage through. Most chicken sausage is already pre-cooked, therefore you only need to heat it through.
After 1-2 minutes covered, remove the lid. Add the shredded cheese and diced scallions. Stir to combine and melt the cheese.
Serve and Enjoy.
