Mezzi Ditali Lisci n° 158

Mezzi Ditali Lisci (smooth half thimbles) are a smaller variation of the classic Ditali Lisci 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 of Mezzi Ditali Lisci makes it very versatile for pasta dishes with tomato or in soups and vegetable broths.

Mezzi Ditali Lisci 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.

Our method

Attention, care, experience, quality at every stage: from our mill to your table.

Selecting the wheat

Selecting excellent primary materials is the first step, the most important one in fact, in creating unique pasta.

The milling

We have been millers for almost two centuries: way back in 1831, Don Nicola De Cecco was already producing “the best flour in the county” in his mill. To this day, we grind all the wheat in our own mill next to the pasta factory, floating with intense and delicious aromas.
molitura

The dough

Cold water and dough at a temperature of less than 15 degrees: two details allowing us to produce pasta that fully respects the primary material.
impastamento

Drawing

While it is the drawing process that gives the pasta its shape, it is the bronze plates that make our pasta uniquely porous, so it captures all the sauce. Hence, this is one of the special procedures we have chosen to preserve and protect. With great pride.
trafilatura

Drying

Another of the secrets behind our pasta is slow drying at low temperature. It is our way of keeping the sensory properties of the wheat intact.

Fedelini n° 10

The origin of Fedelini can be traced back to parts of Liguria and the province of Savona at the beginning of the 14th century with the start of the production of macharoni and tria, also called fidej. They are extremely thin which is how they can still be distinguished from spaghetti.

Simple condiments are recommended for this type of pasta. It is excellent combined with butter dressings, such as uncooked butter and cheese, or melted butter with sage and cheese. Egg or fresh raw tomato based sauces are also excellent. Another way to enjoy Fedelini is in a light, chicken broth. In addition to broths and pasta dishes with sauces, this pasta is also used to prepare oven-baked dishes in the Naples region.
