De Cecco Orecchiette

Little Ears for Hearty Sauces

Pro¬≠nounced as oh-rehk-kye¬≠ht-teh, orechi¬≠ette direct¬≠ly trans¬≠lates to ‚Äč‚Äúlit¬≠tle ears‚ÄĚ in Ital¬≠ian, due to its dain¬≠ty, ear-like shape.

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

Pop¬≠u¬≠lar since the 13th cen¬≠tu¬≠ry, orec¬≠chi¬≠ette has a thin¬≠ner dome cen¬≠ter that curves into thick¬≠er rims, giv¬≠ing it a unique¬≠ly soft cen¬≠ter and chewier tex¬≠ture around the edges. Made with durum wheat semoli¬≠na and fresh spring water, De Cec¬≠co Orec¬≠chi¬≠ette suc¬≠ceeds in cre¬≠at¬≠ing an organ¬≠ic pas¬≠ta with a firm, al-dente bite and sig¬≠na¬≠ture rough¬≠ness that hearti¬≠ly holds pas¬≠ta sauces of any kind. 

PREPA­RA­TION

A ver¬≠sa¬≠tile pas¬≠ta, this small, dim¬≠pled noo¬≠dle cra¬≠dles small veg¬≠eta¬≠bles or thick, chunky sauces well due to its unique shape. But a pas¬≠ta as rich in his¬≠to¬≠ry as orec¬≠chi¬≠ette has a home¬≠town in Italy, the place where it was invent¬≠ed, pre¬≠pared with ingre¬≠di¬≠ents that grew abun¬≠dant in the area. 

In the case of orec¬≠chi¬≠ette, its sto¬≠ry belongs to the city of Puglia, known also as the largest pro¬≠duc¬≠ers of olive oil in Italy. Tra¬≠di¬≠tion¬≠al¬≠ly served with broc¬≠coli rabe, boil the pas¬≠ta for 8 to 10 min¬≠utes until al dente, toss with sauteed broc¬≠coli rabe (or bro¬≠colli¬≠ni if broc¬≠coli rabe is not avail¬≠able), and gar¬≠nish with a gen¬≠er¬≠ous driz¬≠zle of extra vir¬≠gin olive oil, pep¬≠per, and parmi¬≠giano reggiano.

Storage Instructions

Store dry, uncooked pas¬≠ta in a cool, dry pantry for up to one year. Pre¬≠serve fresh¬≠ness by stor¬≠ing dry pas¬≠ta in an air-tight box or con¬≠tain¬≠er. Store plain (no sauce or oth¬≠er ingre¬≠di¬≠ents) cooked pas¬≠ta in a con¬≠tain¬≠er or plas¬≠tic seal¬≠able bag in the refrig¬≠er¬≠a¬≠tor for up to five days and up to three months in the freezer.
