A classic Neapolitan shaped pasta, Mafalde, with their "frilly edges," is named after Princess Mafalda, daughter of King Vittorio Emanuele III in the early 19th century. This shape is also known as reginelle or little queens.
Made from 100% high-quality Senatore Cappelli Italian semolina wheat, this organic pasta has been made by the Zampino family in Campania for generations using traditional methods. Made on traditional bronze dies ensures quality sauce adhesion. The slow drying technique, taking 3-4 days, makes this pasta retain the nutrition values of the high quality wheat giving it a "fresh made" texture and taste.
Mafalde cooks up into a very hearty pasta, generally serving 6-8 people per lb of pasta. Great served with meat sauce or simply tossed with our Caramelized Garlic Olive Oil, Parmesan Asiago Dipper, and grilled chicken.
