Orzo

Collection of orzo pasta recipesjump to the recipes

In Italian, orzo means "barley". It's a small, rice shaped pasta typically made from semolina. Acini de pepe is similarly shaped but smaller in size.

Orzo is commonly found in soups or salads but it's grown in popularity and uses over the last few years. Now you even see it used more like rice such as in risotto or pilafs.

Like other pastas, orzo is a blank canvas to which you can add any myriad of flavors and other ingredients. Orzo with chicken is very popular as is shrimp and orzo.

Since it's a tiny pasta it does cook quickly. If being used in a casserole dish where the mixture will be baked further, you will want to only cook the pasta about 2/3rds of the way since it will continue cooking in the oven.
