May 21 // The Soul of Macaroni and Cheese

Since 1912 Pastificio Di Martino has brought its 100% Italian high quality pasta worldwide. Di Martino pasta has been made for three generations by the successful encounter of selected 100% Italian durum wheat semolina with the purest local spring water. The bronze die extrusion and the slow drying process at low temperature help making it fall under PGI Gragnano Pasta mark. The result is a tasty, healthy and highly digestible product, which perfectly holds sauces and returns the fragrant aroma of fresh wheat.
