Our Producer: Casarecci di Calabria
Our favourite producer in Calabria, Southern Italy is 'Casarecci di Calabria'. We love both the taste of their superior quality products and their beautiful packaging.
This family business, established in 1998, is located in the Sila Mountains. Like many of our producers, Casarecci di Calabria use old fashioned recipes to create traditional products, once the staples of any Southern Italian family and now sought after delicacies. Their entire range is produced without adding any preservatives or colours.
Ingredients: Tomato pulp, extra virgin olive oil, Dried Porcini mushrooms (boletus edulis), mixed mushrooms (nameko, pleurotus ostreatusa, lentinus, edodes, boletus and relative groups), garlic, vinegar, parsley, black pepper, salt.
Cooking Tip: We suggest retaining a couple of tablespoons of the cooking water before draining the pasta and setting it aside. Once you have drained the pasta, put it back in the pan, add the sauce and then the cooking water. Gently heat for a couple of minutes until the sauce is well combined with the pasta and serve immediately with a sprinkle of parmesan.
