Mezzi Paccheri 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 Mezzi Paccheri 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!

Mezzi Paccheri are half size Paccheri and this size of cut makes it ideal for serving with fish or meat Ragu' or tomato-based sauces.

Ingredients: Italian Durum Wheat Semolina, Water.

Directions: use 6 quarts of water for every 1 lb of pasta. Bring water to a boil. Add sea salt to taste. Add pasta to boiling water. Stir from time to time. Drain, reserving about 1 cup of the cooking water. Transfer the pasta to the pan where you have your sauce. Toss vigorously over medium heat until combined, about 2 minutes. If the pasta looks dry, add a small amount of the cooking water, and toss until it looks moist. Garnish with cheese and serve immediately.

Cooking time: 12-13 minutes.

Afeltra was founded in 1848 and is located in the heart of Gragnano. The best Durum Wheat Semolina is delivered to the company and then analyzed to make sure they have the characteristics of excellence required. The dough is mixed slowly in a vacuum and using the purest water from the Lattari Mountains of Gragnano. The exclusive bronze die extrusion process is used, and the drying lasts from 24 to 52 hours, depending on the format, with temperatures that never exceed 118F.
