'I’m not sure a week has ever gone by without my reaching for a packet of orzo pasta. ‘Orzo’ means barley in Italian, and ‘Risoni’ big rice, or really large rice grains, so depending on whether you feel this pasta shape resembles rice or barley, you can call it by either one or the other! I add it to meatballs while they’re simmering in a tomato sauce to make a one-pot meal, to chicken braising or poaching in the oven with leeks and carrots, and create a kind of no-stir pasta risotto with pancetta and peas – and so much more. It’s particularly useful for helping you eke out leftovers: if I have only a small amount of stew, for example, that wouldn’t really be enough for a meal, I heat it up in a saucepan with a little bit of water added, cooking a handful of orzo in it (I sometimes throw in a handful of frozen petits pois, too) to make a speedy, soothing supper.

Great orzo, would prefer an easier to open and seal pack
Great for bulking out soup.
I add these to my home made soups. Helps to bulk out and obsorb the flavours well.
a great alternative to pasta or risotto
Bought this for the Ocado chorizo and prawn orzo recipe. Great texture and flavour will be a regular purchase from now on.
My first time purchasing this and it will definitely be a new favourite.
We love orzo, its like rice but its past! Excellent in paellas, soups and baked with veggies and cheese.
my new favourite pasta
