Gorga. Fregnacce pasta

The "fregnacce" are the typical artisan pasta of Gorga and are prepared by the housewives using only water, flour and salt. The origin of the name that means ‘bullshit’ is uncertain and there are two hypotheses, the first is linked to the simplicity of preparation and the second to the fact that with just a few ingredients a considerable quantity of pasta can be obtained.

Their shape recalls that of short and irregular fettuccine. The fregnacce are seasoned above all with tomato sauce and are celebrated with the festival of gnocchitti and the fregnacce with a party in the square during the month of August.
