Did you know?

  • Maximum egg content allowed by the Australian import regulation law should be less than 20%. Le Mantovanelle Egg Pasta has an egg content of 19.4%.
  • The ‘nests’ that Le Mantovanelle pasta is presented by is a result of the production of ‘pasta sfolgia’, which means pasta made from sheets (‘sfoglia’ means sheet).  Compared to more common extruded pasta, pasta sfolgia is cut into its shapes (for example fettuccine), and the nest is naturally created as the freshly cut pasta falls on itself vertically.
