L'Orecchietta Artigianale (500g)
A classic of the Southern region of Apulia. Best served with a good tomato sauce.
'Orecchiette' literally means little ears. This full-bodied disc shape allows it to perfectly capture the sauce. This pasta is made with 100% durum semolina wheat and water from the springs of Mount Vesuvius to preserve natural flavours. Due to its array of health benefits (it's rich in proteins and other macro-nutrients) and its particularly good cooking qualities, durum wheat has been an integral part of Mediterranean gourmet cuisine for centuries.
Gragnano, in the Campania region, has been the heart of production for artisanally-made durum wheat pasta for centuries.
La Fabbrica della Pasta di Gragnano is an historic producer, and now the new generation of the family is continuing the tradition that made this pastificio famous for their incredible quality in the art of pasta making.
