I love it! I use it instead of pasta to make fresh salads. @superfoxml: I like to keep it simple, I just boil it and then add olive oil, mozzarella, basil, tomato, tuna or whatever I can think of.

Interesting..I'll be on the lookout when I'm at Whole Foods this week. Anyone have any recipes that include farro? I'll be looking online for recipes and will post any that look good.
