A Munnezzaglia

It is called pasta ammiscata and to older people, the word “rubbish” immediately comes to mind. Did you know that mixed pasta, the one that is now sold together with the other more “noble” shapes, many years ago was the basis of the diet of those who could not afford better? The tradition of this particular format has its roots at the time of the birth of the first Neapolitan pasta factories.

The pasta makers, at the time, did not throw away anything and all the pieces (or scraps) of spaghetti, penne, paccheri, maltagliati or ziti processing ended up in large “cuoppi” which were then sold by weight to the poor who they couldn’t afford to buy the more expensive formats.

A Munnezzaglia


From the selection of the best durum wheat semolina processed together with pure water, with the exclusive use of bronze dies, a product with a delicate and unique flavor is born, characterized by extraordinary tenacity and resistance to cooking.
How to cook: the Neapolitans are real artists in the kitchen. The art of saving blends in a perfect combination with the traditional dishes of poor Neapolitan cuisine. Mixed pasta, or munnezzaglia, has thus become a fundamental component for the main vegetable or legume-based soups. There can be no pasta and beans without the ammiscata pasta. Pasta and potatoes with provola would not be the same without the delicious jumble of different shapes that resemble a pictorial composition. It is these poor dishes that have ennobled this very particular pasta shape.
