Whole wheat caserecce alla sorrentina

Naples is a great sea of ​​culture where the rivers of all the neighbouring populations converge: the echo of the great city extends to seafarer localities like Sorrento, the islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida, the Golden Mile, and so on. Each area has its own traditional products and, it goes without saying, its own recipes. When the oldest tradition of Sorrento - the queen of tomatoes and lemons - meets product development, our whole wheat Caserecce alla Sorrentina are born. The original recipe calls for fresh “piennolo” tomatoes, smoked provola cheese from nearby Vico Equense and potato gnocchi. This version is international, so that with every mouthful everyone all over the world can make the journey simply by going to the nearest supermarket. Good pasta for all.
