Puglia 2015

Is a variety of home-made pasta typical of Apulia, a region of southern Italy. Its name comes from its shape, which resembles a small ear. In the vernacular of Taranto it is called recchietedd, or chiancaredd.

Particularly around Capitanata and Salento, orecchiette are traditionally also dressed with a tomato-based sauce (al sugo), with or without miniature meatballs (al rag├╣) and/or a sprinkling of ricotta forte, a seasoned sheep-milk variety of ricotta cheese.

Visit the Salento and enjoy!
