De Cecco gently grinds the heart of each grain, mixes it with cold spring water, then kneads the dough slowly. This results in pasta with the exceptional De Cecco aroma, flavor, and consistency. Pasta easily cooks to perfection, has a great firm texture, and a delicious “fresh” pasta taste. It has a rougher surface, which helps the sauce stick to it. Since 1886 we have liked our pasta to be bronze drawn and slowly dried because we like it to fall into the plate full of taste, rough and always “al dente”. Even though our taste has not changed, as we feel the same love for tradition, we have continued to improve our production technologies. Make De Cecco pasta the secret ingredient for your most amazing dishes. Buon Appetito! Paccheri are a typical pasta from the Campania region. The name comes from “paccarià” which in Neapolitan dialect means “slap”. Probably in popular tradition it was a reference to the large, heavy consistency. This pasta is popular in other regions as well, albeit with different names. It is recommended for preparing pasta dishes served with dense, hearty meat ragùs such as Neapolitan ragù which works its way inside the pasta and fills it with flavor. Alternatively, it can be enjoyed in oven-baked dishes with cheese and tomato sauce or rich fish sauces.
