With a name that means "little ears" in Italian, Rummo Orecchiette Pasta No. 87 is shaped like just that--a tiny ear, that holds sauces in its small bowl shape. Orecchiette is a beloved pasta variety especially in the Southern region of Italy known as Puglia where it is often enjoyed with broccoli (orecchiette alle cime di rapa), with simple tomato sauce (sugo di pomodoro), or with broccoli and sausage (orecchiette broccoli e salciccia).
This Italian imported Orecchiette pasta from the family company Rummo is made from semolina durum wheat (di grano duro) grown in the Campania region of Italy. Thanks to the patented slow processing method created and used exclusively by Rummo, known asLenta Lavorazione®, (literally "Slow Processing" in Italian), Rummo Pasta retains a firm, al-dente texture even when cooked longer than needed, or reheated.
In addition to this processing method, the texture of this Italian Orecchiette pasta comes thanks to the bronze die used to expel the pasta for a rougher surface (perfect for clinging to sauce) and its high protein content (14.5%).
