Morelli Fettuccine with Green Olives combines Morelli’s signature wheat germ pasta with a hint of green olives, lending it a unique and delicious flavour, as well as a light green colour.
Fettuccine is a long, flat and thick pasta popular in Rome and Tuscany, not to mention the rest of the world. In Italian Fettuccine translates to “little ribbons”.
The incorporation of wheat germ, the heart of the grain of wheat, a slow drying process, and high quality durum wheat semolina are the hallmarks of Morelli pasta-making. Most importantly, the rough texture of the pasta allows your pasta sauce to cling to it rather than slipping off. Buon appetito!
About Il Pastificio Morelli:
Morelli have been creating Italian pasta since 1860 in San Romano, Tuscany. A family-run company, 5th-generation, siblings Lucia, Antonio and Marco, are currently preserving the traditions their ancestors put in place. The secret lies in the wheat germ! Morelli utilize an artisanal method of reincorporating wheat germ, the heart of the grain of wheat, into durum wheat semolina to create their pasta with a taste and aroma of wheat that is unique from common types of pasta. Not only does this make the pasta extraordinarily delicious, but also significantly healthier owing to the naturally occurring nutrients and vitamins.
