Antico Pastificio Morelli is a pasta manufacturer that respects traditional pasta methods and was founded in 1860. Tagliolini tomato paste is a tomato-flavored pasta that preserves Morelli's fresh Tuscan flavors and is suitable for consumption even if only with olive oil and basil. Morelli is known for its first-class pastas, which also utilize wheat germ.
Wheat germ is the part of the grain that retains the best vitamins and plant proteins in wheat. Unlike many other manufacturers, Morell's method of grinding flour preserves wheat germ, which also creates its unique taste. In the preparation, the pasta dough is slowly pressed into shape and dried for 36 hours at low temperature, 45 or 50 degrees. This best preserves the aromas and nutritional values of the pasta.
