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.

The name in Italian refers to the shape and comes from the Vulgar Latin tortillare which literally means to wrap in a spiral with a characteristic pattern from the lathe used in pasta production.
The shape is particularly versatile, but also very original, and best suited to full-bodied sauces.
Tortiglioni are excellent served with succulent, meat-based sauces. They are also very good served with tomato sauce or vegetable and tomatic sauces. It is a particularly suitable type of pasta for oven-baked dishes.
