Conchiglie Rigate 500g
Pronounced “con-kill-iay” in Italian or “shells” in Yorkshire.
Most commonly referred to as ‘shells’, Conchiglie Rigate cuddle sauces more than any other pasta due to the rigid outer and smooth, deep, cave-like interior. They are excellent with lighter sauces and those with chunky pieces. For our family, these shells are the basis for the most awesome twist on ‘Mac ‘n’ Cheese’; each pasta piece oozes cheese and those oh so cheeky bacon pieces seem to magically hide in the centres for an exhilarating crispy surprise.
The difference… locally milled wheat flour, traditional artisan techniques and a love for REAL pasta.
The taste is second to none. We dry our pasta slowly overnight at low temperatures to allow robust and wholesome flavours to develop.
The eating experience is sublime. We use traditional bronze dies to give our pasta that important rough surface that sauces cling to.
We produce a more sustainable and tastier British pasta. Our ‘family secret’ blend of locally milled wheat flours replace imported Durum semolina. And all of our pasta is packed in 100% recyclable paper bags. We are plastic free and run using solar power too.
“The shells hold the sauce well and they complement to the overall taste beautifully. I am so happy that I have found a UK made pasta of such a high standard.”
Just look at that BEAUTY! You can see our traditional bronze dies creating a rough surface on each piece of our pasta. This texture gives the pasta its amazing sauce soaking abilities. Once cooked, the pasta soaks up the sauce, creating a beautiful eating experience. The big boys have left bronze dies behind, opting for teflon plastic which is much cheaper. Thus, you find yourself with bright yellow mass manufactured pasta sliding about in a pool of sauce. There’s none of that with our Yorkshire Pasta! Hugs all around.
British Artisan Pasta. You probably didn’t know that dried pasta could taste this good! Our Yorkshire Pasta is made by combining locally milled wheat flour with traditional techniques enabling us to create a beautiful wholesome and robust pasta. We dry our pasta slowly overnight at gentle temperatures to allow the flavour to really develop. And of course, we use bronze dies meaning that our pasta soaks up the sauce way better than mass manufactured pasta. Our pasta is Vegan and we make a huge effort to be sustainable; using green energy and selling our pasta in 100% recyclable paper packaging!
