Each of the Buono! pasta was individually selected at the La Maiella Pasta Factory.
Made in the earth of the Maiella National Park using the best selected durum wheat flours, high mountain springwater, bronze dies and a low-temperature drying process.
Trofie, a short twisted pasta is probably the number one choice for pesto, because the sauce gets into the spirals, ensuring that each mouthful is truly flavourful! In fact, this pasta originally comes from the same region as basil pesto Genovese, the most well known of all pesto sauces.
Trofie were apparently invented in a town on the eastern Ligurian Riviera called Recco near Genova. Legend has it that the women of the region used to sit on chairs along the coast twisting the pasta pieces as they waited for their fishermen husbands to return home.
