Mezze Lune from Afeltra are made with 100% Organic 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 Mezze Lune is 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!
Mezze Lune is a unique pasta shape that has a semicircular shape, which is the reason why it is called Mezze Lune, or half-moons in Italian.
Enjoy this pasta with a bolognese ragù sauce, or Genovese Pesto, or simply with a tomato and basil sauce!
