Eliche from Afeltra are made with 100% Italian Durum Wheat Semolina mixed with water from Gragnano. Afeltra only uses traditional bronze extruding machines, giving the artisanal pasta a rough texture with many pores which help to better absorb the pasta sauce when finishing the dish. Afeltra Eliche are also slowly dried at a low temperature for up to 48 hours which helps the protein structure in the pasta stay strong allowing for a better al dente texture!
Elica literally means helix in Italian, in fact, the shape reminds us of a spiral.
Enjoy this pasta with pesto or ragù.
