Invented as an art form by the artisans of the Marella factory, this nontraditional frilly shape is very popular among chefs.

About Marella

The family-oriented artisanal factory uses dough made of hard wheat (durum) that is locally grown for both their white pasta and colorful pasta. A careful selection of these ancient and heirloom grains ensure a high-quality product that is rich with proteins and flavor.

While industrial pasta factories use a more resistant Teflon-coated steel die, pastas produced at the Marella Factory, or "Pastificio Marella", are extruded through a bronze die, giving the pasta a rough texture to better hold sauce. The pasta is dried at a low temperature for three to four days, yielding a uniquely flavored pasta that expands when cooked.
