Commonly called ‘shells’ or ‘sea shells’ because of their shape, in fact, the word ‘conchiglia’ in Italian means sea shell. Conchiglie aren’t a very ancient pasta shape and are only produced dried. Because they haven’t been around for very long they don’t have a history which is particular to a certain Italian region. Conchiglioni are the jumbo shells, which are similar in size to lumaconi (snail shell pasta) and are excellent stuffed and baked.

The products of Pasta Zaccagni are made only with durum wheat semolina of the best quality and pure Majella mountain spring water. The slow and delicate drying at a very low temperature guarantees a unique and precious product, perfect for tables and restaurants all over the world.

Tips for cooking
100 grams of pasta = 1 liter of salty water

Premium quality pasta doesn't need oil in the water, it is enough to stir the boiling pasta a couple of times in the first 2 minutes.

  • heat up the water in a tall pot, especially if you cook long pasta, then add salt
  • put the pasta in the boiling water, lower the heat when it starts to boil again
  • cook until the recommended time, then taste it to see if it is the texture what you wish for
  • drain it, do not rinse, just mix with any sauce and serve
  • for pasta salads cool it down under cold water
