Giovanni Pazienza’s entrepreneurship resulted in the establishment of Cara Nonna, a small fresh pasta factory, in 1989. The Cara Nonna pasta factory is located in the heart of Tavoliere delle Puglie (famous for the remarkable production of high quality wheats), and the company was converted to produce dry pasta using Apulian wheat shortly after.
Conchiglie is a type of pasta also known as “shells” or “seashells.” It is typically sold as plain durum wheat. Conchiglioni are large seashell-shaped pastas that are commonly used for stuffing and baking. The pasta’s shell shape allows the sauce to adhere to it. For a traditional Italian bake, try stuffing with spinach and ricotta!
