Who says you can't make your own ORZO at home, from scratch ?

Mix one egg with a pinch of salt and enough all purpose flour to make a nice smooth dough. Pull small bits and roll tiny sticks. Then use a knife to cut orzo shaped bits. Even if you think that the sticks are round and the orzo will not come out oval, trust me, they will turn out great, because the knife cutting flattens the dough rope (dough stick).
Boil for 5 to 8 minutes, or until al dente, in salted water. Enjoy !


  1. Fabulous! Thank you! I just found a recipe online using orzo, and thought... hmmm... I wonder if I could make it myself and voila! Here you are with the answer! :D
