Product Description

"Vittorio Maschio has created a range of pastas made without eggs, 'Pasta Bianca'. This shape, gnochetti sardi, works extremely well with sausage and tomato sauce and can be used in soups.

Vittorio Maschio and his team create the pasta at our premises, using the finest ingredients. Two types of flour are used to give the perfect elasticity, bite and structure. As a small producer, we use bronze dies to extrude the pasta, a set of specially designed discs with different shaped openings. As the pasta is passed through by hand, the bronze dies give it a rougher, powdery surface that holds sauce better. We are proud to supply this incredible fresh pasta to some London's finest restaurants.

"This is as close as you can get to having a genuine skilled Mamma in the kitchen" (Rose Prince, The Telegraph)"

TRADITIONAL Sardinian pasta

This pasta is delicious. Cooked the traditional way, like they do in Sardinia, you won't find a better version than this in the UK. Unless it is freshly made in a proper traditional Italian restaurant. Far from looking and tasting like maggots (unlike some quick cook pasta aimed at the British clientele only, which looks and tastes like a mountain of glue), this cooks well, it is delicious with any red sauce, vegetable or meaty one (try it with wild boar ragù if you eat meat! or with aubergine or black olive sauce if a vegetarian) although, as a good Genoese myself, I like it with home made fresh basil or pistachio pesto sauce. My three young kids love it too! It is made without eggs, and that is a huge bonus too. Highly recommended.

Great texture, size and shape!

This went wonderfully well with some smoked mussels, slow-oven-dried tomatoes, shallots and sherry. They were a perfect size match with the mussels and tomatoes which IMO makes a successful pasta dish. Trying a Carluccio slow cooked lamb sauce next...

Doesn't look good

Tastes fine, quick to cook and good packaging. However, my first impression was it looked like a bowl of maggots, hoped it would improve with cooking but the first thing my son said when he came to the table was...urgh, it looks like maggots! If you can get your head round this, then it is a good eat. Would buy again when on offer just not this shape!

First class pasta

In addition to all the positive things said about this pasta by other reviewers, I want to add that it freezes very well. I put the pastas in freezer bags as soon as they arrived, and consumed roughly a month after. As an experiment I cooked one bag from frozen and one thawed, both came out beautifully and there was no difference in taste and texture. Both got thumbs up from my household and friends. I'll definitely buy them again.

splendid product.

this is scrumptious. placed in boiling water i remove when it starts to float if going into a cooking sauce. Has a delightful texture and taste and is a wonderous thing.
