Organic Spugnole Pasta - 14.1 oz
Spugnole Pasta has a shape that looks somewhat like radiatori pasta but slightly different. The appearance is similar to a frilly piece of cloth with wavy embossed ridges that wrap up into a coiled centerpiece.
Our house brand, Bottega Ditalia, organic Italian pasta is made by Pastificio Marella which is located in the heart of Puglia (the old Magna Grecia) in the province of Bari in the "heel" of Italy. Marella, an entirely family run company, is renowned throughout Italy as one the finest producers of traditional Apulian handmade pastas. While industrial pasta factories use a more resistant Teflon-coated steel die, pastas produced at the Marella Factory, or "Pastificio Marella", are extruded through a bronze die, giving the pasta a rough texture to better hold sauce. The pasta is dried slowly at a low temperature for three to four days, yielding a uniquely flavored pasta that expands when cooked. The result is a wonderful aroma and texture superior to rivaled artisan and handmade pastas.
