Product Description

Size: 1 pack

Known as fregula in Sardinia, this pastina (pasta for soups) is medium in size. The name comes from the Latin fricare because it is made by "rubbing" the flour in a similar manner as cous-cous. Water is sprinkled over flour and with rotary motions of the hand, crumbled into little balls of different sizes, then toasted in a wood-burning over. A small amount of saffron is used in the water to give the pasta its wonderful color. Traditionally served in fish soups and mutton stews in Sardinia, today fregola sarda is also served in cold salads with shellfish or diced vegetables.

I read about this pasta in Bon Apetit magazine and it's as good as promised. Fantastic in soups, especially. The toasted nature of the fregola is superb. It's been compared to Israeli couscous because of its size and shape, but the toasting makes its taste very different. It also has a longer cooking time (14-17 minutes) than you might expect. Well worth it.

This fregola is really lovely and flavorful... I bought it for a recipe I found with broccoli and cipollini onions, but now I've found a few more recipes that highlight this wonderful ingredient. This was shipped quickly and I will definitely be ordering again!

Fantastic pasta that mixes well with lemon juice and excellent olive oil. Add some citrus and it's complete. Would recommend.

I bought this to use in a recipe from Nigella Lawson. Great taste and keeps some texture (doesn't turn to mush) after cooking. I recommend and will buy again!

This pasta has a nice, firm texture and good flavor. I am likely to order it again, and invent some dishes to use it.

This is a wonderfully versatile product. They're sturdier than Israeli cous-cous. Dress them up or keep the dish simple. Sauce or butter and cheese suit this macaroni equally well. Leave it to the Italians to know how to make a great pasta!
