Orzo (Italian pronunciation: [ˈɔrdzo], Italian for "barley", from Latin hordeum[1]), also risoni ([riˈsoːni], "big rice"), is a form of short-cut pasta, shaped like a large grain of rice. Orzo can be served alone, as a soup accompaniment, as part of a salad or pilaf or giouvetsi or baked in a casserole.

Orzo is often boiled in Italian soups, like minestrone. It also is boiled and lightly fried, to resemble risotto.
