Have you embraced the awesomeness that is orzo yet?

This bite-sized little pasta is fantastic, quick cooking, and oh so versatile!

Since it cooks so quickly, it’s positively perfect for one-pot meals which means minimal clean-up and less time in the kitchen. If that’s not a win I don’t know what is!

It’s small enough to load up a spoonful with pasta goodness (with no worry of getting slapped in the face with an extra long noodle) but just big enough to hold it’s own in soups, salads, and pasta dishes galore.
