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. Orecchiette meaning “little ears,” is the most famous pasta from Puglia. Done by pressing the dough with the thumb. Traditionally served alla Pugliese (with broccoli rabe, sausage and garlic) or with a hearty meat ragu so that the sauce is cupped in the dumplings. Also great in pasta salads. Made with durum wheat semolina flour.
