Passeficio dei Campi

So many people are hooked on usual pasta they are used to cooking at home. In fact pasta is a commodity almost like gasoline and for those who don’t know the difference it doesn’t really matter. But if you are looking for the real deal, a high quality pasta – look no further because Pastificio dei Campi is it!

Pasta fact: Paccheri get their name from a Greek term meaning slap. The width of the pasta is so much greater in comparison to other pasta shapes that it does in fact remind one of a hand or a slap. It’s also very interesting to note that in certain popular expressions the term ‘pacchero’ is actually used to mean a slap: “stare sotto al pacchero (be under the slap)” for example, means to be under the command of someone else.
