You say pasta and I say noodles

franchisee journey

Every package is filled, weighed, sealed and labeled by hand before it begins its journey to vomFASS franchisees.

Although Marco Polo gets the historical credit for introducing Chinese noodles to Europe, the fact is that noodles had been around long before Polo’s expeditions. There is archaeological evidence documenting that noodles actually originated in central Asia from as far back as 1000 B.C. Virtually every country has its unique form of noodles. Bringing perfection to such a well-established culinary staple was no easy feat, however, vomFASS was up to the challenge.

Teaming up with The Eggerhof farm, located in the South Tyrolean lowlands, vomFASS brings the very best pasta to their eager customers. Every product has a story and this one is no exception.
The Eggerhof farm is located in Aldino, a small town on the Reggelberg in South Tyrol almost 4000 feet above sea level. This gentle dairy farm was acquired by Klaus Lanstchner who is dedicated to sustainable farming and the production of healthy foods.

Klaus understood how important eggs are in our diet and he set his sights on producing free range eggs. Starting in 1998 with just 500 chickens the livestock has risen steadily to 6000. Klaus takes great pride in his well-deserved reputation for maintaining the very highest standards in animal welfare. The chickens are indeed “free range” and wander freely over the large farmland. The chickens are well fed with healthy and natural fodder, completely free of additives. They live together in a tranquil, bucolic environment as well as a light, airy and hygienic barn when necessary.

The Eggerhof farm came to the attention of Chef Erich Gruber, when the chef was looking for a source of free-range eggs. It was this meeting between Chef Gruber and Klaus that the idea of making healthy egg pasta was born with the mission that sustainability would be the cornerstone of the company. Since a small percentage of Eggerhof eggs did not meet the size requirements for retail sale, Klaus and Erich decided to use only those smaller eggs. This way, none of the free-range eggs became a waste product: all were used making the high quality egg pasta.

Chef Erich Gruber sourced the Free Range Eggs and non-GMO pasta ingredients for vomFASS pasta

Chef Erich developed the egg pasta using only locally sourced GM-free (genetically modified) durum wheat semolina and free-range eggs. The pasta is produced the traditional way without additives, colorants, preservatives or even water. Every noodle has a unique taste and incorporates a bit of nature.

vomFASS stocks this wonderful pasta in a wide variety of options. A customer favorite is the South Tyrol Colorful Fettuccine. This noodle specialty is a wonderful Italian pasta made from fresh free-range eggs and flavored with aromatic wild garlic. It is excellent in combination with bacon and garden herbs or with smoked salmon and nuts. Other options include the Basil Fettuccine; Tagliatelle and Bacon Fettuccine.

These pastas are delicious on their own drizzled with any of your favorite vomFASS finishing olive oils or in a favorite recipe such as the Pasta, Peppers and Pancetta below.
