What are Strascinate?

The Strascinate are a kind of Orecchiette, typical specialties of Puglia Region, but they are much larger. Their name comes from the kneading method of the dough: just drag it on a large wooden flat surface with your fingers.

The crumb is sold at the supermarket but it is too finely grated, while the dish provides for a more rustic and coarse crumb.
