Sweet Potato Orzo is an infused rice-shaped pasta made from durum wheat flour. Flavored with sweet potato and boasting a bright orange color, this pasta has an earthy, harvest flavor and appearance. The naturally firm texture and unique color makes it a flexible and versatile ingredient that is resilient to long cooking times and easily incorporated with other ingredients.
Originating in Italy, orzo was created to provide an alternative to rice while still boasting the appealing pasta flavor and texture already prevalent in Mediterranean diets. The word "orzo" means "barley" in Italian, most likely referring to the pasta's grain-like shape.
