Traditional Greek hilopítes look like fettuccine but come from the ancient Greek pasta, láganon. This classic egg-and-milk version is bronze die-cut and made with fresh pasteurized eggs & milk - not powdered.
Greek women traditionally made hilopítes at the end of the summer, laying them to dry and covering them with clean white sheets. Keeping with this custom, Agrozimi doesn't rush things, making sure these noodles are slowly and naturally air-dried for an exceptional flavor and texture. They can be enjoyed plain, with a sauce, or as a tasty side to any main dish. Importantly, there are no preservatives, additives, artificial flavors nor colorants.

For the discerning pasta lover, Agrozimi offers products that recapture forgotten traditional ways with experimental new flavors.
We love hilopítes served on a platter, mixed with fresh summer veggies and sautéed shrimp - a wonderful light family meal. The 500gr. package translates to 1.1lbs., 10% more than 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”.
