Mezzi Ditali Rigati (ridged half thimbles) are a smaller variation of the classic Ditali Rigati and are part of the very short, straight cut pasta family from the Campania region.
The shape of this pasta is inspired by the sewing thimble, but is open at the top as well. The chunky shape and ridges of Mezzi Ditali Rigati makes it very versatile for pasta dishes with tomato or in soups and vegetable broths.
Mezzi Ditali Rigati are especially suited to preparing pasta dishes with a variety of sauces ranging from meat to fish and from vegetables to pulses. The secret of a perfect recipe is that the sauces have a sufficiently liquid consistency so they penetrate inside the pasta.
This pasta is also just as good for preparing broths and soups with vegetables or pulses.

De Cecco Semola di Grano Duro Rimacinata Integrale is obtained by selecting the best durum wheat skilfully ground in our mill.
During milling, the special process used by De Cecco preserves the natural fibre content of our wheat, of the precious "wheat germ" and the authentic taste of the fresh ingredient.
This is why it is particularly suited for making home-made whole wheat bread and preparing, either by hand or with an automatic pasta machine, excellent fettuccine, maccheroni alla chitarra, gnocchi and any other type of pasta with or without eggs.
Ground whole wheat semolina is an excellent alternative to the classic ground semolina and is naturally rich in fibre.
