Ingredients: Durum Wheat Semolina.
Cooking Instructions: Boil in a pot of salted water and drain it as you would any other pasta. It cooks to al dente in about 8 to 10 minutes. 1 cup raw orzo (about 6 oz) will give you about 2 cups cooked.
If you want a slightly creamier result, orzo can be cooked as you would rice. Boil 1/2 cups water for each cup orzo. Add 1/4 tsp salt, then the orzo and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the pasta is al dente and most of the water is absorbed, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cover and let stand an additional 2 minutes.
If you’re planning to use it in a soup, make sure to add it towards the end of simmering so that it doesn’t get overcooked.
