Using only the highest quality, freshly milled durum wheat (Semolina), the process involves long kneading by experienced hands. Every shape of pasta requires a unique blend of semolina flour and water. After kneading, the dough slowly passes through special bronze dies, designed to create each shape, and give the pasta a rough textured surface, to which the sauce clings to, as opposed to falls from. Translated 'Little Ears', the small shape of this pasta pairs best with sausage and chunky vegetable sauces.
