The Yorkshire Pasta Company Conchiglie Rigate No.3
Pronounced “con-kill-iay” in Italian or “shells” in Yorkshire.
Most commonly referred to as ‘shells’, Conchiglie Rigate cuddle sauces more than any other pasta due to the rigid outer and smooth, deep, cave-like interior. They are excellent with lighter sauces and those with chunky pieces. For our family, these shells are the basis for the most awesome twist on ‘Mac ‘n’ Cheese’; each pasta piece oozes cheese and those oh so cheeky bacon pieces seem to magically hide in the centres for an exhilarating crispy surprise.
The difference… locally milled wheat flour, traditional artisan techniques and a love for REAL pasta.
The taste is second to none. We dry our pasta slowly overnight at low temperatures to allow robust and wholesome flavours to develop.
The eating experience is sublime. We use traditional bronze dies to give our pasta that important rough surface that sauces cling to.
We produce a more sustainable and tastier British pasta. Our ‘family secret’ blend of locally milled wheat flours replace imported Durum semolina. And all of our pasta is packed in 100% recyclable paper bags. We are plastic free and run using solar power too.
