Orzo Pasta

SCROLL DOWN TO SHOP PRODUCTS

Orzo is a unique “football” shaped pasta, commonly mistaken for rice. For its very simple looking shape, you'll be surprised to learn that our Orzo is actually one of our most challenging pasta shapes to get right! Our artisan dough crafters are carefully trained in the art of pre-drying our Orzo in several stages -- an important step before setting our Orzo in our specially designed drying chambers for their customary 2-4 day slow-dry.

********************

While Italians are known for plain pasta, Pappardelle's, from its inception, has fused global flavors into the highest quality North American durum semolina wheat. Our pastas are robust and colorful, designed to stand alone simply, with minimal saucing, or as an inspirational springboard for a more complex culinary masterpiece! Let the serving suggestions on each product's page be merely the start of your creative journey...

Orzo is a unique “football” shaped pasta, commonly mistaken for rice. Orzo is formed by extruding the pasta under high pressure. We describe this production process more under our Pasta Shapes section on the left side of this page.

For its very simple looking shape, you'll be surprised to learn that our Orzo is actually one of our most challenging pasta shapes to get right. The reason is that it is easy in our slow-dry process for the thinner ends to dry more quickly than the fat middle. If this happens, the Orzo forms microscopic fissures, becomes fragile and will break apart during cooking. This is especially a possibility for Pappardelle's Orzo, with our myriad of flavors and larger shape than most mass-produced orzo. 

To help avoid this outcome, our artisan dough crafters are carefully trained in the art of pre-drying our Orzo in several stages -- an important step before setting our Orzo in our specially designed drying chambers for their customary 2-4 day slow-dry.

Our Orzo makes a great side dish or "bed" for your main meal, and it is a great gourmet addition in your soup or salad.
