Paccheri is a broad, tube-shaped pasta absent ridges. The selected semolina wheat used in this pasta is strictly of Italian origin and of the best quality, including the Senatore Capelli variety, renowned for cooking to al-dente. It also gives the pasta a golden color. Bronze cut pasta molds create a rough and porous texture much like homemade pasta. The low temperature drying method preserves the distinct texture and aroma.

Serve with fresh tomato sauce or shellfish.

Cooking time: 16 minutes

Pastificio Gentile (est. 1876) is one of the historic, artisanal pasta factories that secured the city of Gragnano's superior pasta reputation. Gentile only uses 100% Italian wheat varietals, which have a higher protein-density, excellent for cooking the perfect al dente pasta. The wheat is milled into semolina flour at one of Italy's oldest running mills. The pasta is formed with bronze cut molds that impart a rough and porous texture much like homemade pasta. The pasta is slow-dried in the cirillo method to preserve texture & aroma.
