Enjoy a fashionable taste of the Italian region of Campania with Dolce & Gabbana’s limited-edition paccheri with Pasta Di Martino. Members of the Di Martino family have owned & run their family factory for more than 100 years since 1912. With a long-standing history in pasta-making, their ability to combine family tradition, technology, and a careful selection of raw materials is the true secret to the high quality of their pasta.
D&G pasta by Pastificio di Martino is a top-quality artisanal pasta featured in a limited edition D&G-designed stunning packaging. The extrusion of the dough through a bronze die and the particular drying process at low temperature confers PGI Gragnano pasta a rough surface that enhances the seasoning and preserves the natural aroma of the wheat intact.
A great classic of the Neapolitan tradition, Paccheri pasta comes in a “tubes” shape that can be easily baked, sautéed, and topped with any imaginable sauce. The name paccheri comes from the Neapolitan dialect, which translated into Italian means a slap given with an open hand, but not in an aggressive way. This is the reason behind their name, which has been ascribed to a slapping sound they may make when eaten.

I have used other brands of paccheri but this is by far the best. They cling well to the sauce and they don’t break up easily when boiled. The price at Timperio is also very competitive! This same paccheri at other speciality grocers costs more!
