Malfaldine is a long, flat pasta with ruffled edges. Sometimes called Mafalda or Reginette, these lasagna-like noodles come from Naples, Italy, where they were named to honor the birth of Princess Mafalda of Savoy (the daughter of Prince Emmanuel III. With a width of about ½ inch, Mafalda noodles are prepared like other long, flat pasta shapes such as Fettuccine or Linguine. 

DeLallo Pasta comes from the town where pasta was born, a region near Naples, at the beginning of the Amalfi Coast. The art of making our pasta begins with the very best quality wheat. We carefully choose wheat with the highest gluten index, gluten content and protein content. All of these characteristics affect how the pasta cooks, as well as its taste and texture. The durum wheat is milled into coarse ground semolina flour and then carefully kneaded with cold, fresh, mineral-rich mountain spring water. We use a tradtional static cell drying process for our artisan pasta. Once pasta is extruded into shapes, it is transferred to a mesh screen then put into a drying cell with a controlled low temperature. This slow-drying method respects the ingredients and preserves the best characteristics of the wheat.

  • Artisan pasta made in Naples, Italy.
  • Exclusive blend of superior durum wheat with a high gluten content.
  • Extruded with bronze dies to create a rougher surface to better absorb and capture sauces.
  • Slowly dried using a static cell drying method that allows wheat to maintain its best flavor, color and texture.
  • Cooks up al dente: a tender but firm bite with a fleck of white at its center—what we call the pasta’s soul.
  • Made in a facility free of eggs, peanuts and tree nuts. Vegan.
  • Online exclusive.

The difference is that Mafaldine is more narrow than Lasagna, about half the width. Also, these pasta shapes are different in their uses.
