Box of 2x500g Pasta "Strozzapreti" - Senatore Cappelli durum wheat
The durum wheat Senatore Cappelli is an ancient cereal, ancestor of the present durum wheat, spread in Italy in the twentieth century and later replaced by more productive varieties.
After a long period of absence its cultivation has been resumed in some regions of the South, including Puglia, for its important nutritional qualities.
We support this tradition and are proposing a line of pasta in the 4 traditional Apulian sizes: orecchiette, strozzapreti, cavatelli and olive leaves.
