    Orzo, meaning “barley” in Italian, is a tiny cut of pasta best known for its feature in homemade soups. Though it is small in size, Orzo pasta is more than just a soup cut, or pastina. Try it in everything from cheesy baked side dishes to orzo pasta salads.

    DeLallo Organic Whole-Wheat Pasta begins with a high-quality blend of Italian organic durum wheat. Wheat is chosen for its beautiful color, wonderful aroma and high protein content. All of these characteristics create a pasta with ideal appearance, flavor and al dente texture when cooked. This wheat is ground into whole-wheat flour, then kneaded with mineral-rich mountain spring water for everything you love about traditional pasta, but with the benefits of whole grains. Pasta is extruded with bronze dies for a rough surface texture perfect for capturing sauces. True to tradition, we dry pasta slowly at low temperatures to retain the pasta’s taste, texture and aroma.

    Kitchen and Usage Tips:

    Orzo is an excellent addition to broth-based soups, baked pasta, cheesy side dishes and cold pasta salads. Try it in a Greek-inspired pasta dish featuring crumbled feta, chickpeas, olives, spinach, basil and lemon. We love it tossed in a Mediterranean-style orzo pasta salad like Lemony Greek Orzo or a summery Orzo Caprese with pesto, cherry tomatoes, basil and fresh mozzarella. Orzo is a great substitute for rice in nearly any recipe.

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    What Is Whole-Wheat Orzo? Whole-Wheat Orzo is a type of pasta called pastina made with the whole grain of wheat. This small pasta is named for its “barley” shape, yet it can be mistaken for large grains of rice. Orzo is known for its role in broth-based soups and pasta salads.

    What Is Whole-Wheat Orzo Made Of? DeLallo Organic Whole-Wheat Orzo is made with a select blend of high-quality durum wheat that has been certified organic. The whole kernel of wheat is ground into semolina flour. From there, it is combined with mountain spring water and kneaded into flour. Our Whole-Wheat Pasta is simple—wheat and water, no additives or fillers.

    Is Whole-Wheat Orzo Gluten-Free? No, Whole-Wheat Orzo pasta is not gluten-free, as it is made with whole grains that contain gluten.

    What Is The Difference Between Whole-Wheat Orzo And Whole-Grain Orzo? Wheat is a type of grain, so anything classified as “whole wheat” is also “whole grain.” If a product is “whole-grain,” this means it can be made up of any grains—not necessarily just wheat. A “whole-wheat” product means that it is made only with whole wheat.

    What Is The Difference Between Whole-Wheat Orzo And Brown Rice? While both may be brown in color, brown rice is a type of grain and Whole-Wheat Orzo is a pasta product made of durum wheat.
