Orecchiette Pasta Bianca


This southern Italian pasta factory run by the Marella family makes pasta the way it was made hundreds of years ago: by hand. The process of making pasta by hand is long but the quality is far more superior Thant the common name brands. 

The Marella bronze drawn Orecchiette are made of durum wheat semolina pasta with a rough and old-fashioned taste, obtained using only 100% Italian wheat. The spaghetti are air dried slowly in order to create the amazing texture. Once you boil a slow-dried artisan pasta just shy of “done,” it has a nice al dente bite yet easily dissolves into a creamy paste as you chew. As the pasta dissolves, it mixes with the condiment in your mouth, creating an incredible, lush texture.
