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.
Orecchiette are a type of pasta native to Apulia, a region in Southern Italy. Their name is derived from their shape, which is similar to a small ear. Orecchiette is a small pasta that goes well with heavier sauces as well as salads and lighter sauces.
Orecchiette with pork sausage, fresh broccoli florets, and buffalo mozzarella is a delicious dish to try! Amazing.
