Angel Hair no. 9

The origins of Angel Hair, with their evocative name (fine hair) and light consistency, are contested between the area around Genoa, Naples and the Ciociaria (central Italy). It is one of the thinnest types of long pasta wound into a nest shape. Even the name Angel Hair is reminiscent of the fine consistency of this type of pasta which is ideal for infants from 9 months old onwards to help them get used to eating food for grown-ups. 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 Angel Hair 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.

Available in 16.0 oz pack.

Our method

Attention, care, experience and quality during every phase: from our mill to your table.

The selection of 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

The drawing process

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

The drying process

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.

Tubetti Lisci (smooth tubes) are part of the very short, dry, straight cut, smooth pasta family and originate from southern Italy. The shape is what gives this pasta its name because it resembles small tubes. Tubetti Lisci are recommended for preparing soups with beans or lentils, or vegetable broths. This pasta is also excellent for preparing very delicate pasta dishes with light tomato and basil sauces. Available in 16.0 oz pack.
