10 Min

Orzo is a small, rice-shaped pasta. It has made its way into everything from soups to side dishes, and it is sure giving rice a run for its money! Keep some orzo in your pantry for those times when you're looking to serve up something a bit out of the ordinary, like our Ten-Minute Minty Orzo.
