Production of Chitarra Campofilone

The Campofilone company, by the experience gained in over ten years of activity in the egg pasta production sector, recently decided to introduce the certified and controlled ORGANIC LINE, aimed at a responsible consumer and looking for a high-quality product. 

Campofilone, a small hill town in the province of Fermo, known and appreciated for its renowned pasta since 1400 and for the national festival, unique in its kind, which attracts over 15,000 people in three days, giving prominence to the product and the producers also internationally.

The processing technique is artisanal, the ingredients used are genuine and the result of careful selection, highly skilled labor. It is a certified organic company that produces spelled food specialties in addition to organic egg pasta. 

To make Chitarra Campofilone, the flour is mixed with eggs and spring water. After these three ingredients are kneaded into a whole, the pasta dough is pressed through a bronze mold. The use of a bronze mold has several advantages. The pasta has a rough structure which makes it easy to cook. Also, the pasta sauce sticks well to the pasta. After the paste is pressed through the bronze press, it is immediately hung to dry. The drying of the pasta takes between 24 and 36 hours. When the pasta has dried, it is packaged by hand.

Cooking Chitarra Campofilone

Cooking Chitarra Campofilone naturally starts with adding the pasta to the water in the pan. Only add the pasta when the water in the pan boils. You will see that as soon as you have added the pasta, the water will stop boiling. Keep the gas high so that the water starts boiling again. Once you have put the pasta in the pan, the real work begins. 

In the meantime, check the packaging for how long you have to cook Chitarra Campofilone before it is cooked. Take the number of minutes as a guideline and not an absolute truth. It comes down to what you like. Pasta is often eaten "al dente" in the center and south of Italy. This simply means that the inside of the pasta is still a bit hard after cooking. In the north of Italy, the pasta is often eaten a little softer. Again, it all comes down to taste. 

How do you know when Chitarra Campofilone is cooked the way you like it? 

Simple: taste it! Once the number of minutes indicated on the package has elapsed, you can grab a paste of pasta from the pan and taste it. Taste if enough salt has been added to the water and taste if the pasta is "bite" the way you like it. Is this the case? Then drain the pasta.
