Orzo, strictly speaking, is rice-shaped pasta. It looks like rice, but it’s really made of hard wheat semolina. Orzo is also known as risone in Italian, manéstra or kritharáki (“little barley”) in Greek, and şehriye (in Turkish).  For families with children, Orzo can be substituted with Alfabetini which is small-sized alphabet pasta. And for cheese lovers:  fried tofu and smoked feta cheese are interchangeable. Fried tofu may be purchased in a Chinese market.

What would you do to make this Orzo Salad more tasty for your taste buds? We would love to hear from you.

We wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year 2010.
