Morelli Linguine with saffron combines Morelli’s signature wheat germ pasta with the aroma of lightly toasted saffron, giving it a radiant yellow colour, and making it ideal for a mixed vegetable or seafood preparation.
Linguine means “little tongues” in Italian, and has a flat and long shape.
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.
