What is orzo?

Orzo is a pasta in the shape of rice, which can be prepared as a traditional pasta or cooked and served in the same way as rice. Like other types of pasta, it can be served as a side dish, in soup, salad or in casserole. It is made from wheat, so it is important to know that if you follow a gluten-free diet, it is not suitable for you.
