Capelli d’Angelo – Egg Pasta Nest 250g

$8.99

Capelli d’Angelo takes capellini to the the next level. This pasta is not just “little hairs,” it is even thinner and more delicate, so it is named “angel hair”. These long, slight strands cook very quickly, so be careful, you don’t want to eat clumps of angel hair! This pasta has been popular in Italy since the 14th century. The lightness of these silky noodles begs for seafood dishes. A wonderful quick comfort dish simply dress it in good EVOO, garlic and parsley. A must for making Pasta Fritta alla Siciliana (Sweet Sicilian Fried Pasta)!

Description

Egg pasta (pasta all’uovo) is the most commonly served dish on Sundays and on special occasions in Italy’s Marche region, the home to Pasta Zelo. What makes Pasta Zelo products unique is the total absence of stress of overheating the dough during its preparation. The raw materials they use are 100% Italian: Wheat flour (semola di grano duro) of Altamura and fresh free-range eggs. The recipes for their pastas follow the best traditions of the Marche region. Thanks to the use of innovative machinery with a low stress mechanism, their pasta has the consistency, roughness and unmistakable taste of handmade pasta. The company’s motto is “The taste of yesterday, the knowledge of today”. The experts at Pasta Zelo do not make the dough in an industrial way, mixing wheat flour and eggs in a machine, as this heats the dough and harms the eggs in the process. Instead, they hydrate the mixture by nebulizing the flour in a closed container then slowly add the eggs. The two bind together making little spheres which are completely separate and cold. They are then put between two rolls of steel which turn slowly, spreading the little spheres into sheets of pasta. This innovative manufacturing method yields a pasta that remains “al dente” no matter how hard you try to overcook it. The cooked strands do not tend to stick together either, as the rough texture prevents this. Finally, it is easily digested thanks to preserving the natural characteristics of the eggs during manufacture. All of this care and attention creates a memorable pasta that you will be proud to serve at any occasion.
