All the flavor of homemade pasta with wheat germ sets this heart-shaped heirloom pasta apart from all others. Wheat germ is the heart of the grain of wheat, rich in flavor and nourishing active ingredients. The wheat germ contains vitamins A, D, and E and also provides a wonderful aroma while cooking. The wheat germ also gives the cooking water a slightly green hue making cooking Morelli’s fresh pasta a completely unique experience. The durum wheat semolina is a little thicker and is able to absorb sauces well and give more succulent and full-bodied wheat flavor to your meals. Our flavored pasta colors are created using only natural ingredients - red beet creates the beautiful red hue in our heart-shaped pasta.
Versatile and Healthy
Our pasta can be used in classic Italian dishes and is especially good served al dente with just a touch of olive oil. The pasta holds up beautifully in more complex meals with vegetables, meats, or seafood added to it as well. Durum wheat semolina is also a healthy choice for pasta as it is very high in protein and low in gluten. It's easy to cook to a perfect al dente in 9-10 minutes. Perfect for celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, Valentine's day, or just saying I love you.
