Wheat germ is the heart of the wheat grain, rich in flavor and nourishing active ingredients. The germ is normally removed when the grain is milled in order to improve the flour concentration and the expiration of the flour. Pastificio Morelli usese artisan techniques to implement the wheat germ to the flour when producing the pasta. The germ gets procesed immediately while still fresh and never gives it the opportunity to deteriorate. This brings the best in both flavor and healthy characteristics to the pasta and gives it a particularly great consistency and flavor. The name for pappardelle comes from the Italian word "pappare" which means to gobble up. Whether served with a meat sauce, sauteed vegetables or seafood, you will be sure to gobble this pasta up!
