De Lallo Organic Semolina Whole Wheat Orzo 16oz
Named for its small ?barley? size, this tiny pastina is a versatile shape known once as just a soup cut. These days, Organic Whole Wheat Orzo Pasta stars in a number of kitchen creations, including cheesy baked pasta and colorful pasta salads.
DeLallo Pasta comes from the town where pasta was born, a region near Naples, at the beginning of the Amalfi Coast. The art of making our pasta begins with the very best quality wheat. We carefully choose wheat with the highest gluten index, gluten content and protein content. All of these characteristics affect how the past cooks, as well as its taste and texture. The durum wheat is milled into coarse ground semolina flour and then carefully kneaded with cold, fresh, mineral-rich mountain spring water. We dry our pasta slowly at low temperatures to reproduce the traditional way of making pasta. This method respects the ingredients, preserving the pasta?s color, texture and aroma.
