So, what is orzo?

Orzo is a versatile and small pasta shape that resembles grains of rice, originating from Italy. The word "orzo" translates to "barley" in Italian, which is fitting since the shape resembles barley grains. Made from durum wheat semolina, this tiny pasta shape is a popular ingredient in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisines, often used in salads, soups, stews, and casseroles. Orzo is a great alternative to rice or couscous and can be used in a variety of dishes to add texture and flavor. When cooked, it has a slightly chewy texture and a delicate nutty flavor.
