CASARECCE PASTA -DE CECCO-
Casarecce Fine Pasta From DeCecco in our Paper Bags.
Casareccia is made with durum wheat and semolina. Originally from Sicily but it's also characteristic of other southern Italian regions.
This pasta is shaped like a small, smooth piece of parchment, rolled up and folded in at the top. The name conjures up its bygone home-made origins, an interpretation of the Arab-style "pasta busiata" obtained with the thin stem of a plant around which pieces of dough were at one time wrapped.
Casareccia is very good with classic ragù, although the smooth, slightly porous surface is also ideal for capturing all types of sauces, from traditional ones to even the simplest of sauces.
