Caserecce IGP Blue - 500 g

Sold By: each


Caserecce from Afeltra are made with the best Durum Wheat Semolina that is mixed with water from Gragnano. Afeltra uses only traditional bronze extruding machines which give the artisanal pasta a rough a porous texture. These pores will absorb the pasta sauce much better when finishing the dish! Afeltra Caserecce are also slowly dried at a low temperature for up to 48 hours, which helps the protein structure in the pasta stay strong allowing for a better al dente texture!

"Caserecce" literally means homemade. It is a typical shape from Southern Italy. It pairs well with red pesto sauce, especially pesto alla trapanese.

Afeltra Carta Paglia was founded in 1848 and is located in the heart of Gragnano. The best Durum Wheat Semolina is delivered to the company and then analyzed to make sure they have the characteristics of excellence required. The dough is mixed slowly in a vacuum and using the purest water from the Lattari mountains of Gragnano. The exclusive bronze die extrusion process is used, and the drying lasts from 24 to 52 hours, depending on the format, with temperatures that never exceed 118°F.
