Mezzi Rigatoni Italian Pasta di Gragnano Organic IGP

Mezzi Rigatoni Pasta is a very high-quality pasta, the result of an artisanal production that has been handed down from generation to generation, allowing the old traditions of Gragnano, always the home of quality pasta production, to remain alive in time.


How it is made

The process of making pasta in Gragnano has always been an art that starts from the raw material: wheat, guaranteed by the system of total traceability of the supply chain. Italian wheat is cultivated with soil-friendly systems, follows regular rotation cycles, with alternating cereals and legumes, in places suited within a few kilometers from the place of work and guarantees preservation of the key raw materials. It is must be stressed by long transports to guarantee a perfect grinding to give life to the best semolina for the future dough.

At this point, it is decided the mixing time and the proportions of the ingredients, adjusting them slowly until the right “pasta point” is obtained. The dough is ready to be extruded through bronze: the kneader decides the thicknesses, shapes, line numbers, pressure and extrusion speed of the dough, the radius of curvature and the length of the cut.

It is the extruder that gives the pasta that roughness that allows the dressing to better combine with pasta and that in Gragnano is called "arraggiatura" (ie anger). Once the pasta is drawn it is ready to be dried: the short pasta is laid on wooden frames, while the long one is spread on canes and then on trolleys, and is left to dry at low temperature to preserve all the fragrance of the grain.

This process lasts on average from 28 to 60 hours depending on the formats, against the 3-5 hours of industrial production. The pasta is ready to be packaged only after having passed careful quality control and a cooking test which certifies its excellent yield. The entire production chain, from the cultivation of wheat to the packaging of pasta, is aimed at maintaining the nutritional and organoleptic properties of the precious raw material unchanged in order to enhance the extraordinary flavor of fragrant wheat in the kitchen, the excellent stability during cooking, the good consistency and the rough surface that favors the union with the seasoning.
