Orzo pasta

Orzo is the Italian term for “barley”, but orzo pasta is actually made from semolina flour and shape like large grains of rice. Orzo pasta is widely available in many supermarkets and Italian delis. Orzo is incredibly versatile in many dishes.

Combining the chewiness of pasta with flavor-grabbing properties of rice, orzo can be the best of both worlds. This pasta shape is immensely popular in soups and stews and it is also used in Greek cuisine, often to prepare casseroles with orzo, lamb and vegetables.

One 2-oz uncooked serving of orzo pasta contains 200 calories. If the base diet on the suggested intake of 2000 calories daily then one serving of orzo provide 10% of daily calories.
