Orzo Pasta from Cervasi Pasta, a Kansas City importer of Italian foods

Know Your Noodle: Orzo

Orzo pasta could easily be mistaken for rice, and that’s likely because orzo is the Italian word for “barley.” Orzo pasta, a classic component in soups, also pairs well with butter or light sauces and is a great addition to casseroles and stuffed peppers.
