Pair Orecchiette Pasta with light sauces and stews
Pirro pastas are slow-dried to retain the durum wheat's natural qualities.
Try this authentic orecchiette in pasta salads, soups, and stews.
Pirro is an Italian pasta brand located in the southern Italian region of Calabria. 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. Add an assortment of Pirro pastas to a gift basket for anyone who enjoys Mediterranean cooking.
Using the highest quality durum wheat and traditional bronze molds, Pirro ensures an authentic Italian pasta experience. Piro Orecchiette, “little ears” in Italian, are small, half-shell pasta pieces. The shells are small enough to use in soups and pasta salads, but will also stand on their own in classic dishes such as an orecchiette pasta with sausage recipe.
You can enjoy a number of classic Italian pasta recipes with these orecchiette noodles. These noodles can be tossed with a light olive oil dressing and red pepper flakes for a quick and easy pasta salad. Or try adding these small, ear-shaped noodles to a pasta dish with Italian sausage, broccoli rabe, and a robust tomato sauce. Serve orecchiette pasta recipes with white wine or sparkling cider for a delightful Mediterranean meal.
