Our Capricci Pasta is hand-made with Certified Organic durum wheat by the Marella factory. The artisans there invented this non-traditional, frilly shape, and it has since become a favorite among chefs worldwide. Pasta made by the Marella factory is some of the best we know-- they use the highest quality, local and organic grain varieties, and the pasta swells up to a large size while cooking.

Because of its frilly shape, we love our Capricci Pasta with any kind of tomato sauce; the curves and swirls of the pasta capture chunks of the sauce! We especially love it with our Arrabbiata Sauce for a spicy kick. Of course, a simple drizzle of some of our extra virgin olive oil, a sprinkling of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and some fresh basil is another great way to enjoy this beautiful and delicious Capricci Pasta.
