Tenuta Marmorelle adopts fresh approach with new pasta range
Following the launch of its bronze-drawn dried pasta range, Italian food importer Tenuta Marmorelle is introducing a deep-filled fresh pasta range.
Launching at this year’s Fine Food Show North in Harrogate on the 10th and 11th March, the new range consists of ravioli in four different fillings and shapes: fresh ricotta & spinach (trade £2.75, RRP £4.25, 250g); ricotta, black truffle & mushroom (trade £3.45, RRP £5.30, 250g); pork, mortadella & cheese (trade £2.15, RRP £3.30, 250g); and Cacio e Pepe, filled with fresh Pecorino Romano cheese and black pepper (trade £3.45, RRP £5.30, 250g).
The pasta itself is bronze-drawn egg pasta, produced by a family business in Bologna that the importer works with, and has a shelf life of 45 days refrigerated.
Managing director Nick Carlucci said the range was specified as “deep-filled” due to the large amount of filling-to-pasta ratio. “The filling is the star made with the freshest Italian ingredients available. We decided on the deep fillings to stand out from other filled pasta on the market where usually the pasta quantity is greater than the filling.”
