Mafaldine is a flat and wide usually about 1 cm in width, with wavy edges on both sides and is prepared in a similar fashion to other ribbon-based pasta such as linguine and fettuccine. It is usually served with delicate sauces. Mafaldine were named in honour of Princess Mafalda of Savoy hence it is occasionally known by its alternative name "little queens".
The Di Gragnano range is a world leading pasta range from Naples. To be called Pasta di Gragnano, the pasta must be produced in a legally defined area in and around the Bay of Naples and it must be made by mixing durum wheat with the calcium poor water of the Monti Lattari. The dough is forced through rough bronze forms (trafilata al bronzo) and dried at low temperatures in the mountain air, helping to create this delicious pasta range.
