This small pasta format is originally from Puglia, and owes its name to its round shape that resembles small ears. To replicate the handmade pasta of Apulian nonnas, Pastificio Di Martino produces their orecchiette with a machine that reproduces the pressure of the thumb, to obtain the same shape and the taste of homemade pasta. Pair your orecchiette with sauteed broccoli rabe and crumbled sausage, or with a spicy tomato sauce.
Members of the Di Martino family have owned & run the factory since 1912 with a passion for pasta that has always been interwoven with their history. Today, the family's third generation is at the helm of the company making PGI Gragnano pasta. Their ability to mix tradition and technology along with the selection of raw materials is the secret to the high quality of their pasta, which is produced with extra fine, 100% Italian durum wheat semolina together with spring water coming from Monti Lattari. The traditional Gragnano method of being passed through a bronze die and dried at a low temperature gives their pasta a superior flavor and a textured surface that binds well with sauces.
