Girolomoni® Durum Wheat Conchiglie fully embraces the organic farming choice: organic agriculture considers the land not an inert support but a living organism that must be respected as such; to produce organically means do not use chemicals at any stage of cultivation, storage and processing, and to use only "local" ingredients. The semolina, which is acquired from the milling of durum wheat, gives pasta the typical amber color and enriches it with proteins and nutritional and organoleptic properties. Girolomoni family left Durum Wheat Conchiglie to dry naturally for about 8 hours in order to keep all precious substances for the body.
The activity of the Mutual Company Gino Girolomoni® began in 1971 with the founder who, as mayor of the town of Isola del Piano (PU), commenced promoting initiatives to enhance and support ancient farming society, and organized courses and international seminars on biological agriculture. In 1977, these early experiences allowed the birth of the Agricultural Co-op Alce Nero®, who, after having sold the brand in 1995, changed its name to Gino Girolomoni Agricultural Co-op®. With its thirty members and thirty-five employees, Gino Girolomoni Agricultural Co-op® has contributed largely to the organic farming development in Italy.
General Information: Pasta is cheap and easy to prepare; you have to cook pasta but you can eat it warm or cold, as pasta salad, you can toss it just cooked or sauté it in a pan before serving. How to eat: Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil (around 1 litre for every 100 grams of pasta that you want to cook), add salt to taste; add the pasta to boiling water and stir softly; cook for about 8 minutes, for authentic Italian "al dente" pasta, start counting the cooking time when the water returned to a boil. Drain the pasta and serve with your sauces and favorite toppings.
