It is a type of pasta that resembles rice. Used often in soups. But cooks more quickly than rice.

Orzo is little rice-shaped pasta. You can buy it by the bag in the pasta section.

Sure, why not try it? We usually have leftovers of almost everything, stuff frequently tastes better the next day.

Hmm. I see Addie beat me to the orzo.

In my experience, Orzo cooks in exactly the same amount of time as rice.

Maybe I have never really noticed because I use it in soups only.

I love leftover Rice A Roni, only there's rarely any leftover.

adding on to a 3 yr old quest

i have tried adding less water and still came out thicker than i like. what i am looking for is rice cooked well enough but loose enough that a 90 year old man would shake it all off his fork before getting it in his mouth....

no i am not planning a joke on an old man... when i was in school i had an english teacher comment on an essay i turned in, about my handwriting,... this is the writing of a 90 year old man on a harley davidson motorcycle...
i just am describing the looseness i desire
