Hi Liz,

The pasta in the shape of rice is orzo:) Our babies love the orzo soup cooked in chicken broth or with grated tomatoes added. That's why it is called the baby soup. When we get sick, we always eat this soup with a
lots of lemon juice.

Here are the links cooked with orzo or vermicelli (as a pasta as well) You can use both of them for these soups :)
