and Calabrian Chili Peppers

Add to favorites Remove from favorites



The porcini mushrooms add a savory nutty flavor, while the Calabrian chili peppers add a touch of heat to this homemade red sauce recipe.

“Conchiglie” translates to “shells” in Italian. Barilla Al Bronzo Conchiglie pasta is made by extruding dough through a bronze die that is micro engraved. This gives the pasta a rougher texture, allowing pasta sauces to perfectly adhere to our beautifully crafted pasta.
