Armoniche is also referred to as 'radiatore' depending on what region of Italy you are standing in. It is one of the most unusual of the pasta shapes and was designed to celebrate the mechanization of pasta making.
Once the dough is ready, it is extruded through a bronze die which gives each armoniche a lightly rough surface. This ensures that the maximum amount of sauce clings to the pasta for an enhanced pasta eating experience.
Over the years the Pasta Maker has developed our own recipe for making pasta that is a close to real Italian pasta as possible. We use only semolina durum wheat flour, pasteurized egg and Florida spring water. Many highly prized Italian pasta makers use only natural water which sets their pasta apart from the rest. We see no reason to change the formula.
All of our pasta dough is handmade in small batches and every step of production is overseen by The Pasta Maker to ensure the best quality every time. It is left to dry naturally and not packed until The Pasta Maker says it's ready.
Armoniche is a nice chunky pasta that enjoys swimming around in rich sauces. The sauce will find each mountain and valley of this pasta, so don't skimp.
Pasta Nostra Armoniche is also available in a range of different flavors.
