The name of this pasta is from the word “spago” or string. There is nothing more comforting than making a very simple tomato sauce with spaghetti. Just take some wonderful tomatoes and simply crush in a pan with a little salt. Add a dash of pasta water. Throw in your cooked spaghetti pasta with a little parmagiano. It's just heavenly!
Zelli pasta has a little different look, feel, and quality than most are used to. There are a few reasons for this: the pasta is made using bronze extruder dies. They leave the pasta with a rougher surface area for sauce to cling to. Most large manufacturers use Teflon dies because they are more efficient and easier; however, the pasta ends up being shiny and slippery. Not a good combo for sauce. Zelli uses high quality organic durum wheat flour.
