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 Ragu' sauce, or Genovese Pesto, or simply with a tomato and basil sauce!

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.
