Located on the fertile land of the Italian region Abruzzo, Casino di Caprafico produces premium quality cereals, legumes and olives, following the traditional farming methods of the Mediterranean cuisine.
Ma’kaira Chitarra consists of 90% semolina durum wheat and 10% naked barley grains, whose husk falls easily without any polishing process, leaving a single grain full of nutrients. This increases the nutritional properties of the pasta, rich in fiber, vitamins and antioxidants.
For a first taste, it is recommended to use a simple dressing, with merely extra virgin olive oil, pecorino and pepper.
The cooking time is about 10 minutes. It is recommended cooking the pasta in plenty of water and draining it even before the cooking is “al dente”.
