Black Calamari Orzo - 1.5 lbs.

$10.99

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 it's use to many different applications. Orzo maintains its shape and color dulls slightly when cooked. Traditionally, Orzo has been used with rice to make goumet Pilafs. 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. One pound dry yields 6 1/2 cups cooked. The black color is achieved using squid ink.

Suggested Use: Orzo can be combined with any number of herbs, vegetables and seafood for an unusual and striking plate presentation. Use in Pilafs, salads, sauces or simply dressed with a light pesto.
