Paccheri is a broad, tube-shaped pasta, mezzi paccheri is half the size of the original format and its use is similar. Serve with fresh tomato sauce.
The selected semolina wheat used in this pasta is strictly of Italian origin and of the best quality, including the Senatore Cappelli variety which is renowned for cooking to al-dente. It also gives the pasta a golden color. Bronze cut pasta molds create a rough and porous texture much like homemade pasta. The low temperature drying method known as cirillo preserves the distinct texture and aroma.
