Pasta Vesuvio

£4.00
Iozzino's 'Vesuvio' pasta twists echo the shape of the famous volcano in the Gulf of Naples where the pasta is produced. It's a modern twist on the traditional pasta shape 'fusilli', and is only made by pasta makers in the Campania region, where Mount Vesuvius dominates the skyline. The nook and crannies of this short curly pasta make it a great match for a Neapolitan style ragu. If you're looking for authentic Italian pasta, you're in the right place. Pasta has been produced in the 'Lo Monaco' mill in Gragnano since 1797. Gragnano, a sunny valley in the Gulf of Naples, was the perfect location for pasta production, with an abundance of water streams to power the mills, and a microclimate that provided fresh wind to dry the pasta and just the right percentage of humidity. The sublime pasta that the region produced was exported from local ports, and the area became famous for this Italian food staple. Iozzino use 100% Italian wheat and the water of their local spring to make their bronze drawn pasta. The bronze die and the slow drying give the pasta a rough texture that is a perfect vehicle for your sauce.
