De Cecco Orzo Pasta, 16 Ounce (Pack of 6 Boxes) #74. Orzo belongs to the minute pasta family to be cooked in broth. This pasta shape was undoubtedly invented to stimulate the imagination of children who commonly eat this pasta in baby food and vegetable soups. The pasta resembles small grains and is fun and appealing. It is especially good for preparing clear soups such as broths or consommé, enhanced with croutons or vegetables cut in julienne strips. This pasta can be used in thick creamy or velvety soups.
De Cecco gently grinds the heart of each grain, mixes it with cold spring water, then kneads the dough slowly. This results in pasta with the exceptional De Cecco aroma, flavor, and consistency. Pasta easily cooks to perfection, has a great firm texture, and a delicious “fresh” pasta taste. It has a rougher surface, which helps the sauce stick to it. Make De Cecco pasta the secret ingredient for your most amazing dishes! Buon Appetito! De Cecco (since 1886), The First Certified Pasta.
