You can use farro anywhere you would rice or pasta, like in this twist on baked spaghetti that uses farro instead of pasta.




  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF. If the farro isn’t freshly made and hot, heat it a bit in the microwave or pour boiling water over it and then drain it, just to heat it through.
  2. Warm the olive oil over medium-high heat in a large saute pan. Add the onion and mushrooms and cook until softened, 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add the garlic, ground meat, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally until cooked through, 4-5 minutes.
  4. Spread the farro into a 9×13″ baking dish. Top with the beef mixture. Add the tomato sauce and spread it out. Sprinkle with the cheese.
  5. Bake until cheese is melted and starting to brown, about 10 minutes.
