Fregola Sarda - Medium

Fregola Sarda is one of the oldest forms of pasta in existence. Originally, pasta makers shaped each noodle by watering semolina and rolling it with their hands until small dough spheres were formed. The spheres were then toasted in the oven until golden brown, and the toasting process is what gives the pasta its characteristic flavor. Each sphere is flavorful and absorbs broth very well. Now the pasta is made on an industrial scale, but because this pasta comes from La Casa del Grano, it is of artisan quality.

Typically Fregola Sarda pasta is used in a variety of traditional Italian sauces or broths and compliments meat and fish very well. Fregola is derived from the Latin ferculum or crumb. So think of it as a crumb pasta that can also be used in risotto, as a soup base, or in fresh summer salads. It works great for your lunch or brunch dishes, but maybe not heavy enough for dinner unless prepared in an appetizer.

La Casa del Grano started in the 1950s a small family business in the Via Pola neighborhood of Cagliari. Over the years, they developed their traditional artisan methods into innovative machines that allow them to create artisan pasta at an industrial scale. Over the past few decades, they branched out beyond traditional Sardinian pasta to create a well-rounded line of pasta products. Each year, they adapt to new trends of Italian cuisine and continue to provide the world with old-style Sardinian pasta.
