Quick Facts

Origin: Italy
Unit Size: 500 grams

The Flavor Experience

Short grooved shells are the ideal mode of transit for your favorite pasta (and cheese) sauces. Pastificio’s incredibly high standards make these golden noodles some of the finest shells you could ever eat. 

The Story

What makes this brand special is its provenance, and it bears the I.G.P. emblem to prove it. The Indicazione Geografica Protetta, or Protected Geographic Indication, requires that producers meet specific standards of production to honor and uphold traditional techniques. The I.G.P. that governs pasta produced in Gragnano, Campagnia, mandates that only durum wheat semolina and water from the local aquifer are used; that they pasta is extruded through bronze dyes; that it is dried between 40-80 degrees Celsius for a period of 6 to 60 hours in static drying cells, and packaged within 24 hours. The I.G.P. also requires that the packaging be made of recyclable material.

As with any great pasta, the quality starts with the wheat. Pastficio dei Campi favors quality over quantity, overseeing a triennial rotation of crops to avoid soil depletion due to monoculture. This results in a more nutritious and hearty grain. You can taste the difference when cooked to a perfect al dente, and you can see the difference right out of the package. The coarse texture provides a more toothsome texture and clings succulently to your sauce, gravy or ragu.

Usage Tips

The ideal pasta to pair with a hearty puttanesca, Bolognaise, or creamy primavera with fresh vegetables.
