Organic Tagliolini with Matcha by L'Origine
L’Origine has upped the health factor to their organic pasta with the addition of matcha. Matcha is a green Japanese tea that is made from high quality whole leaves and is ground down to a fine powder. This gives you a more potent source of nutrients. Rich in antioxidants and small amounts of vitamins and minerals, matcha has been tied to protection against heart disease and cancer, as well as better blood sugar regulation, blood pressure reduction, and anti-aging. The flavor is fresh and green, sweet with a delicate floral and vegetal flavor. Some describe it as umami. Matcha is added to their white pasta made exclusively from organic hard wheat semolina. The semolina is made up of the more refined, interior part of the grain. The result is an easier to digest pasta - especially for those who have difficulty digesting coarse fibers. Bronze drawn into thin, cylindrical strips, the pasta is then slowly dried at a low temperature to maintain the nutritional properties of the grains. Tagliolini is a nice light, thin version of tagliatelle. Play on the delicate grassy flavors of this pasta with cream-based sauces, a simple brown butter sauce or toss with sesame seeds and garlic.

L'ORIGINE is situated in Castegnero in the province of Vicenza in the district of Colli Berici. The factory is perched atop the beautiful Berici Hills. We had the privilege of touring their family-run factory overlooking olive groves and the fertile plains below. The distinguishing trait of a family atmosphere immediately stands out, an environment where every thing is performed according to simple rhythms in which man is still involved in the transformation of the produce. In the mill some grains are slowly ground by a stone mill in order to prevent overheating and the loss of some nutritional elements of the grain itself. We were served an outstanding sampling of their favorite family pasta dishes made by the Beccaro family themselves. We are pleased to offer their wholesome, healthy, organic and delicious line of pastas.
