The Marella family has been producing artisanal pasta in Italy's Apulia region since 1920. They're known for creating fanciful shapes, and all of their pasta is handmade using Old World techniques and the finest local ingredients. Made in Apulia from locally grown durum wheat semolina flour, revered for producing pasta with exceptional flavor. The dough is kneaded slowly then extruded through bronze dies, creating a slightly rough surface, which allows the pasta to absorb and hold sauces well. The pasta is dried at low temperature for 20-48 hours, further perfecting flavor and texture. Spugnole ("morels"): Curled pasta shapes with wavy ridges resembling a morel mushroom. Capricci ("whimsy"): Ruffled pasta shapes with curly edges that capture sauces. Molloni: Compact spirals that resemble springs or twisting vines. 1 lb. 5 oz. Made in Italy.
