Authentic Italian Pasta

I was is Sorento last November. We went to a store where we purchased great dried
spices, etc. I thought we would be going to several more shops but ended up going
back to the cruise ship. I never got a chance to purchase any pasta to bring home.
We had eated at a great restaurant and only know that the pasta was about 1 inch
in length and thick. Can anyone tell me where I can buy it on line. I have all these
great spices just waiting for the real thing in pasta. Thanks

  1. Sounds like "paccheri" which you are looking for. Latini is the best pasta made in Italy. I am sure that you can google it and find it on line.

    1. A.G.Ferrari (agferrari.com) has paccheri and other specialty pastas,like calamari and fusilli col buco, from Pasta di Gragnano, near Naples and Sorrento.
