This rice-sized pasta will lighten things up! Want the comfort of noodles without the heaviness? Discover how enjoyable and versatile Orzo can be! Made with enriched durum semolina flour, Orzo is slightly nutty in flavor and creamy in texture since its long-grain shape releases more starch when cooking. Paired with any sauce or vinaigrette, Orzo is a light and refreshing addition to your pasta line-up!
HOW TO COOK IT: Pasta is personal!
Always begin a pasta dish with bringing a deep pot of salted water to a roaring boil. Add Orzo and cook to a desired texture. When it comes to pasta, we believe it’s all about preference. If you enjoy what the Italian call al dente” then remove your pasta from the heat when it still has a little bite left to it. Like softer pasta? Let your Orzo cook until tender. Whichever way you enjoy Orzo, be sure to stir often to prevent your Orzo from clumping together or at the bottom of the pot.
CULINARY TWIST: Creamy AND cost effective!
One of the reasons we love Orzo so much is how lusciously creamy it can be when paired with the right ingredients. Love creamed spinach? How about pesto? Take your favorite recipe and add it to cooked Orzo for a divinely ooey-gooey pasta dish! Orzo is a wonderful carrier of flavors, as well as other ingredients. For instance, have a big group coming over for dinner? One pound of plain, cooked Orzo will serve 4-6 people, but add veggie’s and roasted chicken and suddenly you’ll be able to serve 8-10 people! Orzo is a cost effective way to entertain, while still dishing out an extraordinary meal.
ABOUT PASTA: Debunking the myth!
You may have heard several tricks to keep your pasta from sticking together, the most popular being the addition of oil to your boiling water. Don’t do it! Oil coats the outer layer of pasta, which will cause whatever sauce you add to it to slide right off. Pasta should absorb flavors, not keep them out! Always boil your pasta in lots of water and salt, while stirring often to prevent any clumping or sticking. Nothing more, nothing less!
HOW TO STORE YOUR ORZO: Dry as a whistle!
Store your Orzo in an air-sealed bag and in a cool, dry place for up to 12 months.
