The Alfabeto (alphabet) belongs to the tiny doughs pasta family. Its geographical origin cannot be traced back to any particular Italian region. The Alfabeto is mainly used for light soups or broths. Thanks to its original alphabet-letter shaped dough it is particularly suitable for an entertaining children meal.
De Cecco was founded in 1886 by the De Cecco brothers in the Abruzzo region of Italy. They pioneered a low temperature drying method for pasta which increased the consistency and quality of dry pasta, and are now one of Italy's most popular pasta brands.
