    Somebody's run out od spaghetti!  Cacio e pepe means cheese and pepper.  Usually it means that a plate of spaghetti or similar long pasta has been tossed with coarsely ground black pepper and grated pecorino cheese with a splash of the pasta cooking water to help melt the cheese.  If all the ingredients are high quality it's really tasty.  Orzo is a pasta shape.  The name literally means "barley" but it's just normal pasta shaped like a barley corn.  Outside Italy the name is used interchangeably with risoni even though they're slightly different in shape.

    TL:DR Cheesy pasta with pepper
