ORZO, CHILE

CHILIORZO-5

Description:

Orzo is made with Durham Wheat Flour (Semolina) which makes it a pasta. The Orzo is 1/3" long and rice shaped. The toothy, firm texture and subtle flavors lend its use to many different applications. Orzo maintains its shape and color dulls slightly when cooked. Traditionally, Orzo has been used with rice to make Pilaf's. Orzo like many pastas, has become a flexible and versatile ingredient. In Italian, Orzo means "Barley." Since pasta doesn't contain any Barley the name is probably in reference to the shape of Orzo. Pasta has been a main stay ingredient in Italian cooking for centuries. Orzo is just one of the many shapes developed for specific uses.

Enriched Durum Semolina Flour (milled wheat, niacin, iron, thiamine Mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid), Red Chili Pepper Powder, Spices, Egg Whites, Wheat Protein Isolate, Onion Powder.
