Orzo, Italian 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. Orzo is most commonly found in soups, or as part of a salad. Feel free to use Orzo as a substitute for Arborio rice, for an interesting twist on risotto. COOKING INSTRUCTIONS: Bring 4-5 quarts of salted water to a boil. Gently add pasta and stir for 1 minute. Lightly boil for 9 -12 minutes or until “al dente”. Drain and serve with your favorite homemade sauce.

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!

Tricolor orzo was served at Rene, our favorite restaurant in Sedona, AZ at an unforgettable brunch, and I thought I would like to try to make it at home. The version I made at home was wonderful and depended entirely on the orzo product I found at Nuts.com.
