Italian durum wheat semolina, spring water from the extinct volcano of Roccamonfina.
We like to call them 'paccheri' and not 'slap' because it is a format born under the Naples sun, but the substance does not change, the name comes from the Greek, it is the friendly slap given with an open hand to congratulate or greet someone 'the pat', on closer inspection it is the sound they make when they pour onto the plate.
