Product Details

Orecchiette (little ears), also known as strascicati, are a typical pasta shape from the Apulia culinary tradition. The shape is a round disc with a slight indent in the centre. In the culinary tradition of Apulia of home-made pasta, orecchiette were made with white flour, durum wheat semolina and water. After the pasta dough had been cut into small pieces, it was dragged (strascicati in Italian) with the tip of a knife to create a sort of small shell, then pulled back with the tip of the thumb. In traditional Apulia cooking, orecchiette are cooked in boiling water with broccoli or potatoes and served with a tomato sauce and sheep's cheese, or with garlic and Oil This pasta is also known as Recchie and is served with vegetable ragù, or lamb and ricotta ragù.

  • SLOW DRYING We still use the same method today to best preserve the natural flavor and aroma of wheat and the natural color of our semolina for a superior quality pasta.
  • COARSE-GRAIN SEMOLINA We use only "coarse"-grain semolina flour in order to preserve the integrity of the gluten and obtain a pasta which is always "al dente".
  • COLD MAJELLA MOUNTAIN WATER We make our dough solely with cold water from the Majella mountains, at a temperature of less than 59° F ensuring perfect firmness when cooked.
  • BRONZE-DRAWN TEXTURE We craft our pasta with bronze draw plates to guarantee the ideal porosity to best capture the sauce.
