Italian Dry Pasta.
100% Durum Wheat Semolina.
From Gragnano near Naples in Italy.
Suitable for Vegetarians.
Garofalo has been making pasta for over 300 years in Gragnano near Naples in Italy, the home of pasta. Made from 100% robust desert durum wheat and shaped using a bronze die gives Garofalo pasta its premium taste and texture.
Orecchiette are typical of Puglia, a region of southern Italy. Their name comes from the shape, which looks like a small ear and in Italian orecchio means ear, and the suffix 'etto' means 'small'.
Orecchiette are about 1.75 cm across and slightly domed with thinner centres compared to the edge giving them a variable texture and a place to catch the sauce.
Store in a cool, dry place.
Prepare & Use
