Orzo is a rice-shaped, short cut pasta made from durum wheat flour. The firm texture and subtle flavor of this pasta makes it a flexible and versatile ingredient that maintains its shape when cooked, adding a unique texture to many recipes. Originating in Italy, Orzo was created to provide an alternative to rice while still boasting the appealing pasta flavors and texture already prevalent in Mediterranean diets. Despite being shaped like rice, the word “orzo” is the Italian word for barley. This is understandable considering the similarities in the shapes of barley seeds and rice grains.
