The Orecchiette from Benedetto Cavalieri are made with the Delicato - meaning delicate - method, as it employees a long mixing and pressing process, slow bronze extrusion and drying at a low temperature of the pasta. All these aspects guarantee that the pasta keeps all the nutritional values and the best flavor of the Italian Durum Wheat.
Distinguished by its original concave shape, Orecchiette pasta, which translates to little ears, is ideal for any type of sauces. By selecting them, you have selected one of the pillars of traditional Pugliese cuisine.
Made with semola di grano duro, bronze-extruded and slowly dried, this mix of shapes is ideal for catching thicker sauces with chunky vegetables, like broccoli rabe.
