Cuoricini(Red Hearts) is an eye-catching pasta perfect for a Valentine's day gift or a romantic dinner served with wine. Unlike most heart-shaped pastas, this cut is connected to a mini heart on the inside which improves the structural integrity and holds onto more sauce. The bold red color comes from tomato and/or chili pepper powders. Cooks in 10 minutes. This pasta is made from natural ingredients and premium durum wheat, the old traditional way with centuries old traditions. The bronze die used to extrude this pasta gives it a fascinating rough texture that will hold sauce in like no other pasta. These pastas are made by a family that operates one of the finest pasta factories in the world located in Puglia, one of the most important regions in Italy for pasta production and consumption. Serves 8.
