Greek Beef and Orzo (lighter version)

This is a great recipe for kids if they are yogurt lovers. Ezra gobbled it up.  I sprinkled some feta cheese on it too.  Yummy!  Enjoy!!!

1 lb ground beef
garlic powder
1 can (14.5 oz) stewed tomatoes, undrained
1/2 cup celery stalk, sliced
1/2 cup uncooked orzo or rosamarina pasta
1 cup plain greek yogurt

1. In a deep nonstick skillet, cook beef and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder to your liking over medium high heat about 6 minutes, stirring frequently until brown; drain and put meat back in same skillet.

2. Stir in remaining ingredients except yogurt. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat; cover and simmer about 12 minutes, stirring frequently, until liquid is absorbed and pasta is tender. Serve with yogurt.
