Pasta Fusilli Casarecci

£4.00
Casarecce (which literally means 'homemade') pasta is short pasta noodles with curled edges that look a little bit like rolled-up scrolls. It was traditionally made by rolling snall rectangles of dough around a thin wooden pin or metal rod. The twisted shape makes it perfect for holding sauces sich as a simple pesto, or a chunky sauce with tomatoes, cheese and vegetables. 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.
