Earthy Delights Porcini Orzo is made with semolina flour, the main ingredient in traditional pasta. Porcini Orzo is a short, rice-shaped pasta with the subtle, yet distinctive flavor of porcini mushrooms.
The toothy, firm texture and subtle flavors of this unique pasta suit it well to a multitude of applications. Orzo, like many other pastas, has become a flexible and versatile ingredient. Orzo maintains its shape when cooked and it has often been combined with rice to make pilafs and similar dishes.
Delicious in a Pilaf, Pasta E Fagioli or Minestrone, cold salads and soups - or just by itself with butter. Serve Orzo instead of rice with stir fry dishes. Toss cooked Orzo with chopped spinach and sliced almonds for a delightful side dish.
