An excellent and unique taste for everyone.

Look for the best pasta and also that artisanal par excellence: pasta " Fabbrica Della Pasta Senza Glutine "produced in Gragnano The City Of Pasta”.
One of the finest Italian food.
Truly "PASTA".

My choice: ' a Caccavella "Gluten-Free.
Great for me celiac but an exceptional result with our friends not Celiacs who appreciated.

' a Caccavella by Gragnano (cities near Naples) gluten free and filled with: a typical type of pasta that is produced by the Fabbrica della Pasta Senza glutine .

' a Caccavella is a kind of slug more than normal: its shape, like a large conch shell, is that of a small pot that is called “ caccavella ” in Neapolitan.

' a Caccavella is the world's largest pasta shape. The weight is around 100 g and the diameter is about 9 cm.

It is a type of format hardly available in supermarkets, but you can buy caccavella online: receive very quickly, gluten-free version for non-coeliacs or by contacting the company.

I – simply – phoned the company that supplied the list of dealers in Rome (Our base city).

For the preparation of the recipe you need to follow some precautions.

As anticipated, the caccavelle weighing over 100 grams each.
Important and essential cooking in boiling salted water for about 15 minutes before stuffing (fill).

Drain one by one; gently remove from pan with slotted spoon and drain well in the cooking water.

For the filling, pay attention to its texture that must be fluid: not too thick but not too liquid.

I recommend serving the caccavelle on the table in a terracotta pot.

There are endless variations for the topping (stuffing) This type of pasta: I tried a seafood stuffing, but good vegetarian version with artichoke Gratin, the one with tasty meat sauce or the vegan version with vegetables curry spicy.

For the large size, You shall serve a caccavella at Diner (our photography plays two caccavelle – We wish the couple of friends).

An important idea for lunch or dinner.

Enjoy your meal


** I have cooked many pasta shapes of many companies over the years because I was diagnosed with celiac so long ago. This was the first time I cooked this format and used this company.

The result exceeded all expectations: perfect cooking, maintenance of cooking, excellent flavor but especially the judgement of Diners (non-celiac disease) It was important to.

They didn't find any difference with their pasta.

For me a satisfaction but also ensures you can host a party without having to prepare different dishes: Prepare the same dough for all.
