Casareccia is originally from Sicily, but is also characteristic of other southern Italian regions.
This pasta is shaped like a small, smooth piece of parchment, rolled up and folded in at the top. The name conjures up its bygone home-made origins, an interpretation of the Arab-style "pasta busiata" obtained with the thin stem of a plant around which pieces of dough were at one time wrapped.
Casareccia is very good with classic ragù, although the smooth, slightly porous surface is also ideal for capturing all types of sauces, from traditional ones to even the simplest of sauces.
Available in 500g or 3 Kg packs.
Conchigliette Piccole are a whimsical shaped pasta for broths which are especially popular with small children thanks to the shape inspired by small, attractive seashells.
This pasta is often used to prepare vegetable broths or in hearty bean and vegetable minestrone soups and it is also excellent when served with creamy sauces.
