Baia Pasta Durum Wheat Ringlets (Casarecca) from Oakland, CA
It’s nearly impossible to find quality dry pasta at a big box grocery store. Produced in Oakland, California by a small group of passionate pasta-makers, this small-batch pasta is made with American-grown organic durum wheat semolina milled with a high extraction rate for a better texture. They also use traditional Italian techniques, such as kneading the dough gently with cold water and drying “low and slow,” to give the semolina a deeper and more complex flavor. This is one of the only places you can buy this awesome product. Spend the extra few bucks on Baia Pasta, and you’ll never go back to Barilla.
