500g Strozzapreti from Pasta Orogiallo.

Strozzapreti, meaning  priest choker or strangler, look like large trofie or an elongated version of casarecce. Slight variations of this usually hand rolled pasta are traditional in most of Central Italy, especially Emilia-Romagna, Umbria, Tuscany and Marche - it’s also quite popular in the South.

The pasta derives from extremely simple raw materials. The dough is composed of durum wheat semolina and water, without preservatives or additives of any kind. Its quality is a direct reflection of the quality of wheat and the careful grinding and pasta making process. The Orogiallo pasta factory in the early 1970s was a small artisan pasta workshop, owned by the Milito family, with the aim of creating high quality fresh pasta that blended all the flavour and wisdom of traditional craftsmanship.
