Deriving it’s name from the Italian word orecchia (ear), oercchiette traditionally hails from the Apulia region in Southern Italy. Whether you think the thick and dimpled discs resemble an ear or a hat, this cut holds sauce remarkably well and is a favorite for macaroni and cheese. Cut with traditional bronze dies for a superior texture that increases surface area and holds sauce, Rummo's patented slow crafted Lenta Lavorazione® Method preserves all the qualities of the finest durum wheat and ensures your pasta remains al dente, even when finished in the pan or in your favorite baked dish.
Recommended Preparation—Bring a large pot of salted water to a rolling boil. Cook the pasta for the recommended 13 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain thoroughly and rinse with cold water to stop cooking. Alternatively, and for a better result, drain the pasta a minute before and finish cooking in a pan together with sauce.
We think that pasta is the culture of our country. So we respect that very Italian pleasure of eating well. Crafted with the finest quality non-GMO durum wheat, and always non-GMO, our family’s traditional Lenta Lavorazione method creates a truly peerless high-protein pasta with exceptional flavor and the perfect al dente chew. Life is too short to eat bad pasta!Read more
