SEMOLINA CRESTE DI GALLO

Try this pasta with our Carbonara recipe or for a unique pairing with creste di gallo is braised chicken thigh with tomato and mushroom, finished with chopped celery leaf and pecorino.
ORIGIN OF CRESTe DI GALLO
It’s suggested that this pasta originally came from Florentine in Italy as far back as the 16th century and true to creative food crafting, was inspired by shrieking roosters and silly court jesters “coxcomb” style floppy hats.
Le Marche has a chicken ragu that goes with creste di gallo.. It may be just as likely the origin story began with a rooster who cock-a-doodle-dood once too much at night and became dinner the next day. Served with a new shape of pasta that was created as a grateful ode to the rooster's contribution to dinner.
