Orecchiette is the most famous pasta export Puglia and if you visit then you will have these in a variety of way! The translation of Orecchiette is Little Ears as you will see from the shape.
Orecchiette is so versatile you can have it in so many different ways. Here are some of our favourite:
Orecchiette with Cime di Rapa which is a stronger broccoli normally served with chilli.
Orecchiette with ricotta cheese; either served with a ragu or just as it is
Orecchiette with a simple tomato sauce.
Orecchiette with fennel sausage and nduja

Thank you very much for your kind review.
Our online store has only been really active since March 2020. The growth of our online customers has been astonishing.
Orecchiette are my favourite, as they are a traditional pasta from Puglia. Orecchiette means 'little ears' I have very fond memories of my Grandmother making Orecchiette by hand. It is an honour for me to bring this products to our customers. I think you had the dried orecchiette, you should try our fresh ones, they are amazing!
Thanks once again,

Beautiful, tasty pasta - delicious!
Thank you very much for the review, much appreciated!
The Orecchiette is made for us by a small family producer in Puglia, Southern Italy and it's the region's most traditional type of pasta...
Thanks again and look forward to hearing back from you again soon.
Excellent, definitely reordering!
Thank you very much for taking the time to send through a review, really appreciate it.
Orecchiette is the most traditional pasta from Puglia and gets its name from the fact that it is shaped like little ears...
Look forward to hearing from you again, keep safe!!!
I was surprised at the lengthy cooking time advised for the orecchiette (18-20 mins) but it was spot on! I tried some a little sooner only to find raw pasta still at the centre of the thicker parts. At 20 mins it was perfect. Still some bite surrounded by soft luxurious pasta.
I made herbed pork & asparagus orecchiette with foraged wild garlic pesto from local woods and a sprinkling of pine nuts. Delicious!
Thank you for the lovely review and wonderful photo, the dish looks amazing!!!
The cooking time on the dried Orecchiette is longer than average but is well worth the wait!!! We do have Fresh Orecchiette, which cooks in just 5 minutes.
Once again thank you for the review and your dish looks incredible!
