Barley isn't orzo, is it??????

c oliver | Oct 9, 2009 11:25 AM

In another thread about risotto, some people posted that they use barley in risotto-type dishes. Rice is a grain and I THINK barley is grain. Made sense but then someone posted that barley is orzo and I may be crazy but I'm 99.9% sure that orzo is definitely a pasta. The mods didn't want the thread to get into a discussion about what constitutes risotto. I just want to have it verified that barley IS NOT orzo and that orzo IS pasta. Thank you :)
