Modern and Traditional are the keywords for Gragnano in Corsa.

A relatively young company Gragnano in Corsa is doing great work with the traditions of pasta-making in the famed designated IGP area of Gragnano.

Pasta di Gragnano IGP is produced only in the hillside town Gragnano, near Naples, using local water and bronze dies. The aroma is of ripe wheat and is an amazing aroma to entice while cooking. Crafted from durum wheat and local water (the specific mineral content makes a difference).

This artisan producer uses rough bronze dies and dries the pasta at low temperatures in the local mountain air. The drying often takes 2 days! The result is a high quality, perhaps longer-cooking pasta, with a rough surface to absorb the flavor of the sauces.

This selection includes ten (10) of Gragnano in Corsa's favorite pasta cuts:

Bucatini. This is ideal for a spicy Amatriciana! Also enjoy BLT Bucatini or top with spinach and sausage.

Paccheri Lisci. In dialect, the name means "slap"! These could be described as smooth rigatoni. Recommended recipes: toss with mushrooms and cream; bake with cherry tomatoes, mozzarella, parsley, and ricotta; or create a vegetable ragu.

Penne Rigate. The delightful ridges are recommended with Penne alla Norma, Penne alla Vodka, and Pasta al Forno.

Occhi di Lupo. These short cut tubes are recommended with Pasta Fagiole and baked pasta such as Pasta al Forno.

Spaghetti. This superb Spaghetti is ideal with simple sauces, such as Pomodoro, Cacio e Pepe, Pesto, and Aglio e Olio e Peperoncino.

Spaghetti Chitarra. The name evokes guitar strings. These long pasta strands are a different shape. They are square spaghetti and they are named for the stretched wire, like guitar strings, used to cut them. Recipes? Try with Carbonara, or cream and truffles.

Rigatoni. The ridges on Rigatoni are recommended with Penne alla Norma, Penne alla Vodka, and Pasta al Forno. It’s also a classic with sausage and broccoli. 

Linguine. Long, flat, somewhat narrow Linguine is ideal for shrimp scampi, linguine with seafood, and and a simple shrimp, lemon, and extra virgin olive oil.

Tortiglioni. At Gragnano in Corsa, Tortiglioni is a large spiral or spring. It can be subsituted for rotini and cavatappi. (Other producers have a tortiglioni that is a ridged tube...). Families will enjoy this shape as it is exuberant and fun. It is idea for a ragu or Bolognese. This also makes a delightful pasta salad.

PappardelleThis gorgeous pappardelle is ideal for a ragu with pork or beef and even mushrooms. Consider boar as well!

Please enjoy “al dente”. Please don’t overcook.
