Organic Sicilian durum wheat Casarecce Pasta 500g:
Libera Terra (“Freed Land”) champions organic and sustainable farming on hundreds of hectares of land taken from mafia organizations in Sicily, Apulia, Calabria and Campania. The organic durum wheat used for this Pasta is sown between November and January, in rotation with legumes, vegetables and forage. The semolina is cold-pressed (-40°C) to preserve the organoleptic characteristics of the ingredient. The Pasta is flat, and bronze drew giving a coarser, porous texture which helps the sauce or pesto bind to the Pasta shape creating an authentic flavoursome perfect bite with every bite. Casarecce, a traditional shape from Sicily, are short twists of Pasta with curled edges and a groove down the middle to capture all your delicious sauce.
