Maccheroncini: The PGI pasta cut, the one that made the pasta di Campofilone famous. Great with meat, fish and vegetable sauces.
The Leonardo Carassai family has been in the milling business since 1850, subsequently branching out to become one of the few artisanal pasta companies in Campofilone.
Today, Leonardo Carassai, one of the few producers of this Campofilone delicacy, follows the rigorous traditional methods and recipe to make the dough, using only carefully selected premium-quality soft wheat flour, durum wheat semolina and fresh eggs. The company still uses the old-fashioned bronze wire-drawing method to prepare the different cuts, which are then dried very slowly at low temperatures, giving the pasta its rough texture ideal for better sauce absorption.
This is why Carassai Pasta has a unique flavor and it is super light, making it easy to digest. The Leonardo Carassai Pasta di Campofilone is not just pasta, it is a delicacy.
Deci'Ova means "ten eggs" In fact, the original recipe of the Maccheroncini di Campofilone calls for 10 eggs per each kilogram of soft wheat flour and durum wheat semolina. They are the only ingredients used to make this delicacy, a pasta with a unique wholesome flavor and very light on your digestive system.
