“Orzo is pasta masquerading as rice. Risotto is rice masquerading as pasta”

Many people get confused between orzo and risotto, and they wonder what dish is pasta and what is rice.

“risotto is made with rice. orzo is a type of pasta about the size of rice” was posted on Twitter by Kate on February 25, 2014. “Risotto is the most pasta-like rice. Orzo is the most rice-like pasta” was posted on Twitter by Uncil Greg on May 23, 2014.

Wikipedia: Orzo
Orzo (/ˈɔːrzoʊ, ˈɔːrtsoʊ/, Italian: [ˈɔrdzo]; from Italian for ‘’barley’’, from Latin hordeum), also known as risoni (pronounced [riˈzoːni]; ‘large [grains of] rice’ ), is a form of short-cut pasta, shaped like a large grain of rice. Orzo is traditionally made from white flour, but it can also be made of whole grain.

Wikipedia: Risotto
Risotto (/rɪˈzɒtoʊ/, Italian: [riˈzɔtto], from riso meaning “rice") is a northern Italian rice dish cooked with broth until it reaches a creamy consistency. The broth can be derived from meat, fish, or vegetables. Many types of risotto contain butter, onion, white wine, and parmesan cheese. It is one of the most common ways of cooking rice in Italy. Saffron was originally used for flavour and its signature yellow colour.

So my daughter says risotto is a rice that tastes like a pasta, and orzo is a pasta that looks like a rice?  Confusing.
