This pasta has it all. Made with raw organic, organic materials with artisanal methods, the addition of "superfood" spirulina algae makes this a delicious and healthy pasta.
Bronze drawn, this pasta is formed into long, narrow ribbons. The pasta is then slowly dried at a low temperature to maintain the nutritional properties of the grains. This flavorful spirulina pasta simply asks for a splash of EVOO to be appreciated. Complements most seafood based pasta sauces such as clams or shrimp.
L'ORIGINE is situated in Castegnero in the province of Vicenza in the district of Colli Berici. The factory is perched atop the beautiful Berici Hills. We had the privilege of touring their family-run factory overlooking olive groves and the fertile plains below. The distinguishing trait of a family atmosphere immediately stands out, an environment where every thing is performed according to simple rhythms in which man is still involved in the transformation of the produce. In the mill some grains are slowly ground by a stone mill in order to prevent overheating and the loss of some nutritional elements of the grain itself. We were served an outstanding sampling of their favorite family pasta dishes made by the Beccaro family themselves. We are pleased to offer their wholesome, healthy, organic and delicious line of pastas.
