The origin of Mezze Maniche Rigate (ribbed half sleeves) is in the North of Italy where they were also called "Maniche di Frate" (monk sleeves), stemming from a garment worn in the summer.
Garofalo's Organic Wholemeal Mezze Maniche Rigate is a versatile shape working well with heavy as well as velvety and creamy sauces and optimal in pasta bakes. Thanks to its bronze drawing, sauces adhere to the surface and coat every inch of this tasty pasta.
Garofalo was established in 1789 in Gragnano, the homeland of pasta. The climatic conditions of the area are perfect for drying pasta, and the presence of spring water that originally fed the mills, made Gragnano the ideal place for the production of pasta.
