RITROVO® is delighted to have “refound” this Pastificio, located in Gioia del Colle north of Bari, for our 2022 catalog. We used to delight in importing, cooking, and selling their amazing Monezza or “Odds & Ends” pasta that we used to get thanks to the help of Casina Rossa. Now, we have made a direct connection at the source and are bringing back this beloved pasta and other Marella products straight to our warehouse. Their pasta is special in being made of 100% Italian wheat, cut with bronze die and slow-dried for up to 72 hours. Purely artisanal. Moreover, the colored pastas they make are all enhanced by natural coloring agents like beets, turmeric, and spirulina which add micronutrients as well as beauty to every primo piatto. We have also added from Marella some tasty handmade taralli and biscotti, all baked to order with local extra virgin olive oil. Their flavors and rustic texture are typical Pugliese style and will add the flavors of southern Italy to any meal you cook.
