The pasta flour we’ve been waiting for.
We searched high and low for the perfect pasta flour and we think Molino Pasini flour just might be it.
Molino Pasini’s Semola di Grano Duro Flour produces toothsome fresh pasta with structure and strength. Also known as semolina rimacinata, semola flour is a twice-ground grano duro, or “hard wheat,” flour. Its high protein and gluten content means it can stand up to kneading and stretching and rolling, making it the perfect flour to use for hand-formed shapes like orecchiette and cavatelli. This semola flour can also add more structure to fresh egg pasta dough shapes – try mixing a little in with your Molino Pasini 00 Flour to create a slightly stronger dough.
