Orecchiette means ‘little ears’!
Although orecchiette pasta is traditionally from Puglia, and neighbouring Basilicata, it is very popular throughout Italy today. The word ‘orecchiette’ means ‘little ears’ and, obviously, the name derives from the shape. Orecchiette are said to have become popular in Puglia between the 12thand 13th century. So, this is definitely a pasta of ancient origin. However, some food historians say that originally this pasta arrived in Southern Italy from Provence during the 13th century with the Angevins, who brought a form of pasta with them called ‘crosets’ similar to the orecchiette of today.
