Wholemeal Orecchiette

Categories: Regional shapes

Wholemeal Orecchiette are a distinctive Puglian type of pasta; shaped roughly like small ears - hence the name (orecchio; ear, orecchiette; little ears). They’re about 3/4 of an inch across, slightly dome shaped and their centres are thinner than their rims - a characteristic that gives them an interestingly variable texture; soft in the middle and somewhat more chewy on the outside. The typical regional recipe combines orecchiette with “Cime di rapa” - a variety of broccoli from Puglia, but it’s also ideal for tomato and vegetable based sauces.


How to use:
Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil, add salt and the pasta. Cook the pasta, drain and dress with one of our delicious sauces or pesto's. Cooking time: 12-15 mins.

Ingredients:
Wholemeal durum wheat semolina, water
