    Shellbows Pasta

    Product Weight:
    16 oz


    Shellbows pasta, also known as lumache, is a shell-elbow hybrid and is as fun to say as it is to eat. Thicker, creamier sauces are easily captured in its curved tube and ridged exterior, making it a superstar cut for dreamy baked pasta dishes.

    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 past 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 dry our pasta slowly at low temperatures to reproduce the traditional way of making pasta. This method respects the ingredients, preserving the pasta’s color, texture and aroma.

    • Made with an exclusive blend of the highest quality durum wheat with a high gluten content.
    • Extruded with bronze dies to create a rougher surface that better absorbs and captures sauces.
    • Dried slowly at low temperatures to preserve pasta’s color, texture and flavor throughout the cooking process.
    • Cooks up for that signature al dente texture: a tender but firm bite with a fleck of white at its center—what we call the pasta’s soul.
    • Made in an egg, peanut and tree nut free facility. Vegan. Contains wheat.

    Kitchen and Usage Tips:
