Whole Wheat Organic Tortiglioni from Afeltra are made with organic whole durum wheat semolina that is mixed with water from Gragnano. Afeltra uses only traditional bronze extruding machines which give the artisanal pasta a rough and porous texture that will absorb the pasta sauce much better when preparing your dish. Whole Wheat Organic Tortiglioni pasta is also slowly dried at a low temperature for up to 48 hours, which helps the protein structure in the pasta stay strong allowing for a better al dente texture. Tortiglioni pasta takes its name from the Latin verb torquere, meaning "to twist". Enjoy Whole Wheat Organic Tortiglioni with a hearty sausage ragù sauce, or any kind of pesto, from basil to walnut to Trapanese.
