Conchiglioni from Afeltra are made with the best durum wheat semolina that is mixed with water from Gragnano. Afeltra uses only traditional bronze extruding machines which give the artisanal pasta a rough and porous texture that will absorb the pasta sauce much better when preparing your dish! Conchiglioni 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! Conchiglioni is an Italian pasta variety shaped like a conch shell. It is the largest of shell-shaped pasta and is most often stuffed with various ingredients, then baked in the oven.


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 carefully selected to make sure they are up to Afeltra's standards of excellence. The dough is mixed slowly in a vacuum using the purest water from the Lattari Mountains of Gragnano. The pasta is made exclusively through a bronze die extrusion process, and the drying lasts from 24 to 52 hours, depending on the shape, with temperatures that never exceed 118°F.
