Orzo, or Kritharáki in Greek, are short-cut pieces of pasta that look like flattened rice. Traditionally used in pilafs, soups, salads and casseroles, orzo is a wonderful foundation for an elegant meal instead of rice or polenta.
For a delicious Greek-inspired one-pot dish, serve Melissa Orzo with sautéed onions, garlic, diced tomatoes and shrimp, white wine (optional), seasoned with oregano and topped with tangy Feta cheese. If you are a fan of pilafs, Melissa Orzo is a perfect for rice and bulgur pilafs. To enhance the inherent nuttiness of our orzo, toast it along with the rice or bulgur, in butter or olive oil for a 4-5 minutes with salt and garlic (optional) before adding your cooking liquid. For a quick and easy side dish, serve our orzo with tomato sauce and Feta or parmesan cheese. Orzo is a wonderful binder for stuffed vegetables and pairs beautifully, as a warm side dish, with roasted chicken or lamb.
