Orzo, the Italian word for “barley”, is a type of short-cut pasta, shaped like a large grain of rice. Orzo is very versatile, and can be used in everything from a side, to a main course. Most commonly found in soups or used as part of a salad, there is no limit to how orzo can be used. Feel free to use orzo as a substitute for arborio rice, for an interesting twist on risotto.
How to Cook Orzo
Bring 4-5 quarts of salted water to a boil. Gently add orzo pasta and stir for 1 minute. Lightly boil for 8 -10 minutes or until “al dente.” Drain and serve with your favorite homemade sauce.
An Artisanal Process
These cuts are ﬁrst extruded through brass dies & then dried for 24–36 hours. This longer drying period results in superior quality and texture.
Our Artisanal Pastas In A Nutshell
Everybody loves pasta! But believe it or not, it’s not all the same. We specially chose our artisanal pasta supplier from a New Jersey-based, family owned business with a passion for pasta. For over 45 years, these specialty pasta makers have been carefully handcrafting their premium pastas using 100% semolina flour in every small batch.
Conventional Pastas vs. Artisanal Pastas
The last box of conventional pasta (or dry pasta) you picked off your pantry probably held shiny, golden colored noodles that were smooth in texture. When cooking pasta dishes, you actually want the opposite! Artisanal pastas are extruded through a bronze die and made with a super-coarse grind of durum wheat, which allows the pasta to dry more slowly and at a lower temperature than conventional pastas. This process makes artisanal pastas chalkier in color and rougher in texture which results in a richer-tasting, chewier-textured pasta that easily clings to sauces of all sorts. Bon appetit!Read More
