Lupetta pasta is sourced from our long established pasta supplier based in Lombardy in the beautiful Franciacorta wine producing region in the Province of Brescia. Each shape is made from high quality, 100% Italian, Kronos® wheat semolina which gives a bright yellow colour and a higher protein level [14%] than standard durum wheat pasta.
Strozzapreti are a popular pasta shape made by rolling small strips of dough. The name can literally be translated as “priest strangler”, although why the inhabitants of Emilia Romagna, from where these shapes are believed to have originated, wanted to strangle priests is unclear! They are shaped like twisted cloth or towel and perfect with meat ragu recipes.
When cooking, Lupetta pasta releases less starch and retains its al dente texture. This makes it ideal for ‘double cooking’ if you need to part cook, set aside and then finish cooking briefly later. Perfect for those wishing to spend more time with their guests than in the kitchen!
Made using a bronze die which gives the Strozzapreti a roughened, powdery surface texture which your chosen sauces will adhere to better.
Suitable for vegetarians, vegans and for Halal and Kosher diets.
