Supposte, i Pensieri del poeta, Banane, Celli di prevete

Abruzzo is a region in central Italy known for its rich culinary traditions. One of the most famous products from this region is the “Supposte,” a type of pasta that is typically made by hand and has a unique shape. This pasta is commonly found in the towns and communes of Abruzzo such as i Pensieri del poeta, Banane, and Celli di prevete.

The history of Supposte dates back to ancient times when it was a staple food for the people of Abruzzo. It is traditionally made with durum wheat flour and water, and its unique shape is achieved by rolling the dough into thin strips and then cutting it into small squares. The pasta is then pressed with a special tool to create its distinctive ridged shape.

One popular recipe that features Supposte is “Supposte alla Chitarra,” which is a simple yet delicious dish that combines the pasta with a rich tomato sauce and grated pecorino cheese. Another popular recipe is “Supposte con le Pallottine,” which pairs the pasta with small meatballs in a savory broth.

Supposte has been recognized with the “PAT” (Prodotti Agroalimentari Tradizionali) designation, which certifies its traditional production methods and ensures its authenticity. This designation helps to preserve the culinary heritage of Abruzzo and promotes the use of traditional ingredients and techniques in the production of Supposte.
