Casarecce Tumminia - Artisan bronze drawn pasta
Casarecce made with Tumminia or Timilia flour ground with natural stone is a wholemeal pasta that was born in Sicily, for centuries engaged in the cultivation of durum wheat. It is here that thanks to the Mediterranean climate, the natural suitability of the soil and the hot Sicilian sun, excellent ancient hard grains are still produced today, excellent for pasta making. The fragrance and high flavor, typical of homemade pasta, is due to the use of the best Sicilian durum wheat, the use of purified mixing water and the manufacturing process. The high quality derives from the subsequent processing stages such as drawing and drying. In fact, the bronze drawing makes the surface rough and porous, while the drying at very low temperatures for about 48 hours, allows to obtain a product of the highest quality without altering the typical flavor of ancient Sicilian wheat, giving our products exceptional nutritional and organoleptic characteristics, in order to "eat healthy to live better".
Thanks to the shape of a small parchment with inlets, this pasta shape is excellent for collecting any sauce, such as a good meat sauce. Fragrant and rich in proteins, this pasta is highly digestible, ideal for diabetics and for those who follow low glycemic diets.
