Riccioli is a unique spiral-shaped pasta with roots in the Piedmont region. From the Italian word ricciolo, which translates to “curl,” this lovable artisan pasta is great for many types of sauces—from fragrant basil pesto sauce to cream sauces to chunky and hearty sauces that catch perfectly in its frilly, sturdy curves. 

DeLallo Artisan 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.
