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.

Prepare & Use
Cooking time 9 minutes.

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 celery stick,
1 celery stick,
3 medium sized tomatoes,
¼ savoy cabbage,
1 broccoli floret,
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.
