Homemade egg pasta is one of the gastronomic delights of San Ginesio, the town in the province of Macerata, surrounded by woods and on the border of the Natural Park of the Sibillini Moutains. These Egg Quadrucci are made with simple ingredients: durum wheat semolina, whole fresh eggs shelled by hand and the pure water of Fargno. The homogeneous mixture obtained by combining these three ingredients is hand rolled with rolling pin, and then forced through a bronze die. These Quadrucci are similar to the traditional ones; they have a more coarse cut and are larger than industrial ones. After that, the Quadrucci are dried very slowly at low temperatures in order to retain all the nutrients included in the wheat and the eggs.
