According to an old rule egg based De Cecco pasta is made with extremely fresh eggs, free from coloring agents, shelled, pasteurized, kept at 2-3 Â°C and then kneaded in a special way in the thinnest noodle possible, just like home-made pasta. The quality of the wheat and flours is top quality, the same as usual. The eggs are obviously fresh and natural, guaranteed by De Cecco. Pappardelle, originate from central and southern Italy and belong to the long pasta cuts. They have a flat section with varying widths from 0.433" to 0.590". Pappardelle make an excellent combination with meat sauces. Also delicious with tomato and cheese sauce or with creamy sauces that cling to the pasta.
