    Product Description

    Bronze die cut, dried at low temperatures and made in Gragnano the birthplace of dry pasta, our Pasta Gragnanese spaghetti not only tastes better and retains all of its goodness when cooked, it also has plenty of surface area to absorb the flavour and liquid of the sauce with which it is served. In the dictionary of Nicol... Tommaseo e Bernardo Bellini from 1819 the word spaghetti already exists. The name comes from the size and similarity to a small piece of sting (spago).

    Spaghetti can be served with hot or cold sauces, both tomato or vegetable as well as spicy sauces with oil and chilli. This type of pasta is also perfect with fish and shellfish sauces.

    Producer

    Produced by: Pastai Gragnanesi

    Our main selection of pasta is produced by Pastai Gragnanese from Gragnano, the birth place of pasta near Naples.

    Pastai Gragnanese have been making pasta with passion since 1980 following ancient methods passed down from generation to generation over the last four hundred years.

    If you are passionate about pasta you may be familiar with Gragnano pasta. So why is it so special? What does the name really mean? The name itself implies a location and style of production, much the same way that a DOC wine appellation does.

    To be called Pasta di Gragnano IGP, the pasta must be produced in a legally defined area in and around the Bay of Naples and it must be made by mixing durum wheat with the calcium poor water of the Monti Lattari Mountains.

    The method of production is crucial too. The dough is forced through rough bronze forms (trafilata al bronzo) and dried at low temperatures in the mountain air for at least a day (normal industrial pasta is dried in a few hours). The slow approach ensures better flavour and means the pasta retains its nutrients.

    The result is a high quality product with plenty of surface area to absorb the flavour and liquid of the sauce with which it is served.
