Mezzi Ditali Rigati n° 159

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.

Available in 500g pack.s

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.
grano

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.

Casareccia n° 88

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.
