Small Fregola Sarda
Small Fregola Sarda is the smallest of this variety of durum wheat toasted pasta, which hails from the island of Sardinia, off the coast of mainland Italy. It is similar to Middle Eastern couscous, but toasting and rolling the pasta in semolina create a rough-textured surface that enables sauces to cling exceptionally well.
Bring 4 cups of water to boil with a pinch of salt. Add 1 cup of couscous. Boil gently for 10 minutes, or until al dente. Drain and rinse with cold water or serve immediately.
Storage & handling

In Sardinia, the home of fregola sarda, this tiny toasted pasta is traditionally paired with briny clams, white wine and tomatoes in a flavorful broth, perfect for sopping up with grilled bread. This classic recipe makes the most of simple ingredients, and the chewy texture of our Fregola Sarda.
