- Cuisine: Mediterranean, Traditional Italian, Type: Entrée, Product Line: Barilla® Traditional Semolina
This sweet orzo was served as a breakfast item at The Flavor Experience 2016. You can make it healthier by eliminating or reducing the sugar when cooking the orzo, and/or using a more natural sugar. And of course, the fruit can change with the seasons.
Cook the Barilla® pasta in 3 qts water and the sugar for 1 minute less than the time indicated on the package. Drain pasta and spread it flat on sheet trays or hotel pans to cool slightly.
Mix warm orzo with the ricotta and serve warm, drizzled with honey and topped with orange supremes and extra-virgin olive oil.
- 1 1/2 lb. Barilla Orzo
- 3 cups sugar
- 6 lb. fresh ricotta
- Orange blossom honey
