Casa Del Grano Traditional Malloreddus Pasta

This pasta is sometimes referred to as “gnocchi” in Italian and “cigiones” in Sassari.

If you think about olive oil, bacon, peas, Parmigiano-Reggiano, fennel, sausage, tomatoes, garlic, basil, saffron, etc. all of these ingredients can make a wonderful dish with this traditional Malloreddus Pasta!

Malloreddus is a small pasta shape from Sardinia, made with water and semolina flour in plain or saffron dough. The name has Latin origins from “malleoulus”, meaning small morsel.

It is also believed the origin of the name comes from the word malloru, meaning bull, and that malloreddus means calves, and the shape is like the calf of a leg.

With a little bounce in the bite, a space to hold flavor and an exterior that grabs the sauce, what more could you want in a pasta shape? This is the Malloreddus without the Saffron....
