Cooking Time: 8 min.

Established in 1876, Pastificio Gentile is one of the historic artisanal factories that made the city of Gragnano famous around the world for its pasta. Today, Gentile keeps the traditional production methods and the attention to every detail, from selection of raw materials to the production processes. The chosen semolina is strictly of Italian origin and of the best quality. Among the selected wheat varieties is the renowned Senatore Cappelli. All wheat used in Pastifi cio Gentile pasta is single-sourced and processed with care and respect at the Ferro Brothers Mill in Campobasso (in the Molise region of southern Italy). The excellent raw material allows for the production of a premium quality pasta and the low temperature drying method known as "Cirillo" safeguards its distinct aroma and texture.

Each of Pastificio Gentile’s pasta shapes are bronze cut, meaning that the molds or "dies" used in production are made of bronze. The bronze mold creates a rougher more porous pasta giving the pasta a homemade quality. As a result, sauces and seasonings do not slide off of the pasta as they would with a smoother type.

Pasta Gentile bears the PGI (IGP) mark (Protected Geographical Indication) which promotes and protects its name and recognizes its highest quality. The mark ensures that only products genuinely originating in a specific region are allowed to be identified as such in commerce.

Excellent Dry Pasta

Terrific bite! I'd expect many non-Italians may want to cook this pasta a bit beyond the time specified on the package, but I thought the suggested time was just right. My first use was with a pork and porcini sugo, using the liquid from the mushroom rehydration process to intensify the flavor of the sauce. Good stuff.

Surprisingly Tasty

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, I was unable to get the medium-sized shell I'd always used for my tuna pasta salad. These are a wonderful substitution.
