Pétoura pasta were brought to Greece by the refugees of Asia Minor and are especially common in northern Greece. Women would make these wide, flat noodles at the end of every summer, air-drying them under clean white sheets. Agrozimi has kept this tradition, using pasteurized whole milk and eggs (not powdered!), with slow, natural drying for a higher-quality, rich flavor and texture. Importantly, there are no preservatives, additives, artificial flavors nor colorants.

We love this pappardelle-like pasta as an accompaniment to traditional Sunday and holiday roasts. You can find a deliciously authentic Greek recipe on the inside of the label pétoura or just enjoy them with a simple drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and a grating of aged cheese. The 500gr. package translates to 1.1lbs., 10% more than the standard pasta packs. While there is a suggested cooking time on the pack, try it for yourself and cook to taste, especially if you like your pasta “al dente”.
