Made in Italy, by a family-owned company. They developed and use specialized equipment that rolls pasta, as if it were by hand to maintain the hand-crafted nature of the product. Artisan dried pastas may take anywhere from 8 hours to 48 hours to dry. Our Maika`i Organic Artisan Pastas are meant to be eaten "al dente" (with a bit of chew). Unlike industrialized pastas, our pastas may need to be cooked a bit longer than other pastas. Unlike Barilla and Golden Grain which are made in the USA, our Maika`i Organic Artisan Pastas are the real deal and made in Italy. Net Weight - 1 lb.
