Product Description

Italian Dry Pasta.
100% Durum Wheat Semolina.
From Gragnano near Naples in Italy.
Suitable for Vegetarians.

Garofalo has been making pasta for over 300 years in Gragnano near Naples in Italy, the home of pasta. Made from 100% robust desert durum wheat and shaped using a bronze die gives Garofalo pasta its premium taste and texture.
Orzo are made in the shape of a grain of rice. The word orzo is Italian for "barley," and a reference to the size and shape of the pasta. They are very versatile, and can be used in a range of recipes. The classic use is in soups and casseroles, but they are also excellent in salads or as pilaf.

Product Information





Store in a cool, dry place.


Cooking time 9 minutes.
Bring a large pan of water to the boil and add salt if required. Keeping the water at a rolling boil add the amount of pasta needed. Stir with a wooden spoon to prevent the pasta sticking together and to avoid damaging the pasta. Cook for the recommended time, drain and serve.

Minestrone della Nonna
The struggle to get children to eat vegetables is frequently linked to how they are presented (frequently too big, too obvious, boiled to death, with no flavour etc). This dish provides a wide array of vegetables (all sorts of vitamins) coupled with flavour (not too intense though for the little ones), ease of eating (it is coarse soup if you like) and mixes very well with a child friendly Garofalo pasta like Risoni (providing all the nourishment that this brings).

100 gr parmigiano,
1 cup of Garofalo orzo (to cook separately),
1 cup frozen/fresh garden peas,
1 cup borlotti beans (fresh or frozen),
1 shallot,
1 celery stick,
3 potatoes,
1 celery stick,
3 medium sized tomatoes,
¼ savoy cabbage,
1 broccoli floret,
1 leek,
1 carrot,
Basil leaves (to add at the end),

All the above (except basil) diced and placed in a large pan with at least 1 litre of boiling water.
Season and cook for 1 hr minimum.
Blitz either all or half to a coarse puree' with a hand held blender.
Cook the pasta separately and once Al Dente place into the soup, stir and simmer for a couple of minutes and add finely chopped basil leaves and sprinkle some good quality extra virgin olive oil. Serve at once and enjoy. In summer (if hot!) the minestrone can be had at room temperature.
It is amazing how popular dish can be with children who would normally not get anywhere near such an array of vegetables.

really tasty as orzo should be

The orzo is a very good size and quality, i used it in a Greek tomato dish and it cooked in 10 mins. It's rounded like proper orzo is and lot flat like others. Definitely worth the price and I will buy it again.

Rating: 5 star out of 5

Tasty and versatile ingredient!

Love this. Made a fab minestrone guided by one of Nigel Slater's recipes. Amazing, more of a pasta dish than a soup and so satisfying. Just put orzo in 15 mins before serving.

Very nice product

I liked this a lot. Tried it out in a couple of different soups/stews and it was an excellent alternative to rice or pearl barley. Good texture and also toddler friendly. Highly recommended.

Rating: 5 star out of 5

Great compromise between rice and pasta

I'd bought this abroad and it's taken me ages to find it here - so useful.

Rating: 5 star out of 5


We really like this as it is the same as in Greece and Italy. It is a very versatile product even though it is a tad expensive we think it is worth it as the texture and taste is better than similar products.
