Doris authentic Italian bronze dye pasta. Bronze dyes have a more course surface texture and will create a more porous and chalky texture to the pasta. This is considered a more desirable texture for a pasta. The porous texture allows for the pasta sauce to adhere to the pasta and absorb the sauce. These small gnocchi are made to look like small seashells or ridged gnocchi, but without the use of potato in the dough. Traditionally served with lamb ragu or fish, this shape is also used in Sardinia in hearty soups. Made with durum wheat semolina flour.
