Orecchiette pasta originates from Puglia in Southern Italy. These little round shapes are brilliant for holding sauces and are perfect for the classic Puglian dish of Orecchiette con cime di rapa. Cime di rapa literally translates as turnip tips but is sometimes called broccoli di rape - it's a great tasting winter vegetable but can be substituted for tender stem broccoli.
Armando extrude pasta through bronze dies that gives a rougher finish which allows more sauce to stick - making each mouthful taste perfect.
