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.
Fusilli paesane by Cara Nonna literally translates to peasant fusilli. This type of pasta was traditionally made in villages. It complements both cream and tomato-based sauces.
