A Sardinian specialty pasta, malloreddus, is enhanced with saffron to add a splash of yellow-orange color. For centuries, the island of Sardinia has been known for its saffron and sheep. Customary practices developed where saffron was used to color pale pasta — making it look rich with egg. Local sauces using flavorful sheep milk cheeses and butter highlighted distinct grass flavors varying with each region’s pasture land. A common pairing for this pasta is to serve it with cream sauces, fresh mint and pecorino.
Dried pasta at the supermarket lacks texture and flavor, meaning it has a harder time clinging to the sauce.
Sfoglini makes small batch, freshly extruded pastas made from the finest organic semolina flour produced in America. Their pasta has a textured, porous surface so your sauce will cling to it and the pasta is air dried to preserve the most nutrition and flavor. It's like an Italian grandma making pasta in your apartment. They use 100% organic American grains with farm fresh ingredients - no dyes or artificial flavoring.
