From the Apulia region in Italy, Benedetto Cavalieri pasta is considered one of the world's highest-quality authentic durum wheat pasta. Since 1800, the Cavalieri Family has grown wheat in the heart of Apulia. In 1918, the Mill and Pasta Factory Benedetto Cavalieri began his mission to craft First Choice Pasta.
The durum wheat used to make Benedetto Cavalieri pastas are grown on the hills of southern Italy without the use of chemical fertilizers. The dough has been kneaded and molded by a special bronze alloy to create its delicate shape. It is then dried at low temperature for about 40 hours to preserve the nutritional value of the durum wheat.
When translated, rotelle means wheels. This shape allows sauces and soups to fill freely inside and remain there. It is a crowd favorite for soups, baked dishes, or as the base of a pasta salad.
While industrial pasta tends to appear more golden and smooth, artisanal pasta is rougher in texture and coated with leftover starch. This makes the pasta easier for sauce to cling onto and gives it a much richer taste.
