TUXORZO-10

Description:

TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE - Tentative Arrival 5-6-14     Tuxedo Blend Orzo is another form of Pasta. Called "Tuxedo" because of the Black (from Squid Ink) and White (Plain Egg) colors of the Pasta. The Orzo is 1/3" long and Rice shaped. Orzo maintains its shape and the color dulls slightly when cooked. The toothy, firm texture and subtle flavors lend it's use to many different applications. 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.
