Pirro is an Italian pasta brand located in the southern Italian region of Calabria. The region is most famous for its spicy cuisine (thanks to the local Calabrian chili peppers), but the people at Pirro also want the world to know that it is a place where high quality pasta is made. Here, pasta dough is prepared at low temperatures and slow-dried for up to 30 hours, all in an effort to retain the wheat’s natural proteins and gluten. The end result is an Italian pasta with great texture and flavor, perfect for making your favorite recipes.
Types of Pirro Pasta
Pirro carries a variety of pasta types, including durum wheat semolina pasta and egg pasta. Explore shapes like gnocchi, orecchiette, lasagna, and tagliatelle pasta, as well as local Calabrian types like medium-length, loosely folded filei and maccheroni al ferretto. Taking the regional ingredients as inspiration, Pirro also produces a collection of flavor infused pasta featuring porcini mushroom, Calabrian peppers, and black truffle. Whichever pasta type you prefer, be sure to pair it with authentic Italian sauce from Supermarket Italy, and add a dash of Tutto Calabria Chili Pepper Spread for that classic Calabrian spice!
