Trofie Colore Macaroni

May 04, 2016 in Category: What's New

Spring has sprung, and like the old show tune goes, everything’s is comin’ up pasta! Okay, we might have modified those lyrics just a tad—but can you blame us? Our latest addition to our pasta lineup makes us want to sing! Crafted in hues of rosy red, soft orange, sunny yellow, muted green, and neutral ivory, Trader Giotto’s Trofie Colore is not just autentico—it’s bellissimo.

Per most accounts, modern trofie—a tight, spiral-shaped macaroni—originated in Northern Italy and is a staple of Ligurian cuisine. Falling right in line with its history, Trader Giotto’s Trofie Colore is made for us by a 4th-generation Italian pasta producer using only the highest quality durum wheat.

Having been in the pasta business for ages now, our supplier remains true to the art of pasta making by combining ancient manufacturing methods with modern machinery. They even static dry their pasta for 15-16 hours at a low temperature. That’s a lot of hours... just saying.

Toss Trofie Colore with a splash of any TJ’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil and some of our fresh Organic Basil. Top it with your favorite TJ’s pasta sauce and some freshly grated TJ’s Parmesan Reggiano. Use it as the base for a pretty pasta salad to bring to your company picnic... then sit back, relax, and watch the summer potluck invites roll on in.

We are selling each 16 ounce bag of Trader Giotto’s Trofie Colore for $1.99—a ridiculous value for pasta this authentic and this beautiful. Don’t wait to grab a bag, though—our supply of this special, seasonal product is sure to fade away with the summer sun...
