HemisFares Dry Pasta Facts

Ready to impress friends with your noodle know-how? Here’s what you can share about each of the imported dry pastas from the NEW HemisFares line:

Fusilli Bucati Lunghi

16 oz. for $3.99
From Campania, Italy, this long pasta was first made by twisting a pasta thread around a fuse or a spindle.


12 oz. for $2.99
The distinctive rounded shape of this imported pasta was inspired by the roofs of ancient Apulian houses, called trulli. It comes from the Puglia region and its name is translated as “little ear.”


12 oz. for $2.99
Hailing from the Lazio region of Italy, this tubular pasta comes from the Italian word “rigati,” which means ridged.


9 oz. for $3.99
From the Marché region, this egg-based pasta was originally crafted by generations of local women from Campofilone (and is produced there to this day!). It’s made from durum wheat and over 35% eggs, then worked by hand without the addition of any water.

Anelli Giganti

12 oz. for $2.99
This authentic pasta shape originated in Southern Italy; it’s produced with the highest quality ingredients before being bronze cut, leaving it with rough, porous edges to better catch and hold sauces.


12 oz. for $2.99
Originally from the southern island of Sicily, this half-moon-shaped, ridged pasta has a very long drying process — resulting in a strong color and a rich, hearty flavor.
All of the HemisFares dry pastas are made by local, artisanal producers in Italy using traditional Gragnano style methods — the highest quality production process for pasta. The machines they use cannot produce more than a few hundred pounds of pasta an hour (compared to tons of pasta at industrial companies). The pasta is then dried for 12–14 hours (compared to 4–6 hours) at a lower temperature to preserve the authentic flavor and natural nutritional value of the wheat used.

My thoughts
The only other noodles I've ever found that are this good were in the freezer. These noodles have a good homemade flavor. They cooked perfect al dente without getting mushy. They were also good warmed up the next day for lunch. I  had never heard of HemisFare pastas before this and had no idea what to expect. I did not know that this was a product of the Kroger brand as well.

I received one or more products mentioned above for review purpose. No other form of compensation was received. My opinions are my own. Your opinion may vary from mine. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.
