The quintessential format of Puglian pasta, orecchiette represent the gastronomic symbol of Puglia.
In Puglia, when it comes to pasta, it’s only orecchiette, and if they are handmade, they become “strascinati“. Orecchiette is a typical type of pasta from Puglia, whose shape is approximately that of small ears, from which it derives its name. These delicious little domes of semolina pasta, called “récchietèdde” in dialect, are a pride for those who succeed in their difficult preparation.
For some time now, orecchiette have come together to form a new delicious format, “Maritati“. This has become a typical pasta format characteristic of Puglia, a perfect combination of two traditional Salento formats, orecchiette and maccheroni. Maritati actually means married, to emphasize the concept of marriage between two types of pasta.

These have a good cooking time, and as previously mentioned, only they know how to capture the condiment and the being of two different but complementary cooking times, they are fantastic and to conclude, a good and quite digestible pasta.
