The egg pasta of San Ginesio is a classic example of how the great respect for tradition ensures high quality food. The recipe of this pasta is handed down from generation to generation: a dough made from durum wheat semolina, whole fresh eggs and mountain water, forced through bronze dies and dried very slowly at low temperatures in a pristine environment. These Egg Spaghetti, therefore, are not only a staple of the culinary tradition of the Marche but also a celebration of sustainability and respect for biodiversity. The wheat is cultivated by Luciani Family, the eggs are produced in barns, water comes from mountains, precisely from Fargno (1800 mt), and the manufacturing process is entirely handmade.
The passion for pasta of the Luciani Family is handed down from generation to generation. Once the grandmothers were the ones who, with a rolling pin and wooden counter top, did not lose an opportunity to make delicious egg pasta, recently the grandson Diego, fascinated by this art, decided to embark on a real mission: to make the tradition of egg pasta of the Marche known to the rest of Italy and abroad. The laboratory is located in San Ginesio, a place standing out for its clean air, healthy climate, charming country and enviable calmness. The Azienda Agricola Luciani produces egg pasta, typical of the tradition of San Ginesio, offering different shapes: quadrucci, maccheroncini, spaghetti, tagliatelle, pappardelle, mezze maniche, conchiglioni and strozzapreti.
General Information: The egg pasta is easy to prepare; dressed just cooked or sautéed in a pan; it is excellent with tomato based or meat based sauces, fresh vegetables or fish. The pasta should be stored in a cool dry place and should not be exposed to the sun. How to eat: Bring a large pot of water to a boil ( around 1 litre for every 100 gr of pasta that you want to cook); season with salt and add pasta. Cook pasta in boiling water 5 minutes, stirring softly with a wooden spoon to prevent pasta from breaking. Drain the pasta and serve it with your preferred sauces and seasonings.
