Extra fine pasta originates from a centuries-old tradition started in the Northern Italian region Marken: the windy wea- ther in this region often caused the pasta to break during the drying process. In order to avoid this, very thin pasta was created which dried quickly in the wind due to its lightness. This pasta was packed in special paper with great craftsman- ship to protect it during transport. A virtue was made out of necessity and the extra thin pasta was sought after all over Italy because of its filigree shape.
Our selection of extra thin pasta is produced based on the same traditional process. Just like in the old days, this extraordinary pasta is wrapped in special paper by hand and, therefore, retains its unique shape and delicate taste of high value ingredients. This pasta variety is refined with fruity lemons from Sicily.
Durum wheat*, Sicilian lemons (4%)*. (*all from organic farming)
This pasta tastes best with a variety of light sauces with fish or seafood, sautéed zucchini or pancetta, cherry tomatoes and parsley, Mediterranean vegetables or simply with butter & parsley.
