Egg Pappardelle

Le Mantovanelle

Pappardelle is the egg pasta with a much wider cut. It originated in the northern-central part of Italy, in the area of Tuscany and Emilia Romagna. The name comes from the dialect word "pappare”, meaning to eat with joy and pleasure. This pasta makes an excellent combination with game meat sauces. The light, flaky egg pastry is ideal to mix and bring out the flavour of any thick sauces.

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.
