La Casa del Grano Fregola

Fregola is a unique Sardinian semolina pasta product, produced by hand-rolling semolina dough into small spherical beads. The raw fregola balls are then twice-dried, once in the sun and once in the oven, creating an uneven surface, nubby texture and toasty flavor. Moistened with vegetables and stock, they make a lovely bed for fleshy fish or even meaty stews. Try it in soups, instead of rice or couscous, or even with a nice pasta sauce.

Mellin Pastina

Teeny Tiny Pasta Cuts

This Italian line of teeny tiny pasta cuts is absolutely perfect for the youngest pasta aficionado-to-be. Cut into fun shapes like stars and rings, the miniature bits of pasta can be eaten easily by tots who don’t even have all of their teeth yet. Confession: some of the grown-ups working at A&V really like it too! All of the Pastina products cook in 4 minutes or less.
