Orzo pasta, or kritharaki in Greek, is in every Greek pantry because its rich egg and milk flavor make for the ideal quick and hearty meal. Bronze die-cut and made from durum wheat semolina, fresh pasteurized eggs and whole milk (not powdered!), this pasta is tasty enough to be enjoyed plain, with a drizzle of olive oil and dash of lemon. Importantly, there are no preservatives, additives, artificial flavors nor colorants.

For the discerning pasta lover, Agrozimi offers products that recapture forgotten traditional ways and add experimental new flavors.
We love kritharáki as a more robust alternative to rice, a perfect accompaniment to any dish with a nice sauce, or in hearty soups. The 500gr. package translates to 1.1lbs., 10% more than the standard pasta packs. While there is a suggested cooking time on the pack, try it for yourself and cook to taste, especially if you like your pasta “al dente”.
Looking for a recipe for your kritharaki? You’ll find one on the inside of the label! Here’s one more for an easy stovetop shrimp youvetsi and one for our Delicious Greek Orzo Salad.
