This is a "center of the plate" pasta used by some of the best chefs in Europe. Using only the highest quality, freshly milled durum wheat (Semolina), the process involves long kneading of the dough. 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 perfectly textured surface to best hold the sauce. After shaping, the pasta is allowed to dry in antique ovens and rest at low temperatures. Slow drying at low temperatures retains more of the nutty flavor and aroma of the durum wheat.

 

A smooth-sided straight tubular pasta, this is a very versatile cut, great with any meat or vegetable sauce. Maccheroni are also traditionally used in basked pasta dishes.
