Cooking Time: 18 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 preserves 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" preserves 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.

Great pasta

Very good quality. Bigger paccheri than other brands, they stay al dente and do not break up while cooking as much as other brands.
