Pearl couscous (sometimes called Israeli couscous) came to Greece from the Eastern Mediterranean, where women patiently rolled out the little balls of pasta by hand. Agrozimi continues this tradition, making the pasta by hand with the finest durum wheat semolina and fresh spring water from their village of Arávissos, with slow, natural drying. By adding a touch of pasteurized squid ink, Agrozimi has created a subtly-flavored and distinctively-colored accompaniment to your favorite seafood dishes and a striking base for pasta salads. Importantly, there are no preservatives, additives, artificial flavors nor colorants.
HOW TO USE IT
You can find an authentic Greek recipe on the inside of the label or simply use this pasta to jazz up any plain fish or seafood dinner. Check out our recipe for Pearl Couscous Salad with Calamari or Pearl Couscous with Roasted Tomatoes & Lemony Shrimp. 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”.

We chose Agrozimi for brothers Kostas and Yiorgos Martavaltzoglou’s love of tradition, while still daring to experiment with flavors and techniques. We were also impressed by their state-of-the-art facility and commitment to high-quality product standards, all that show in their exceptional pasta.
