From the Naples region, Tortiglioni is a twisted tube pasta with ridges that spiral around the noodle. This short cut pasta is a sturdy shape that shines with full-bodied sauces and meaty ragùs, like the famous slow-simmered Bolognese sauce.
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 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 in Italy with an exclusive blend of the highest quality durum wheat.
- Extruded with traditional bronze dies to give a rougher surface texture great for capturing sauces.
- Always cooks up for that perfect al dente bite.
- Twisted tube pasta with ridges great for hearty sauces.
