The Secret Behind Italy's Rarest Pasta

In a modest apartment in the town of Nuoro In Sardinia, a slight 62-year-old named Paola Abraini wakes up every day at 7 am to begin making su filindeu - the rarest pasta in the world. In fact, there are only two other women on the planet who still know how to make it: Abraini's niece and her sister-in-law.

No one can remember how or why the women in Nuoro started preparing su filindeu (whose name means 'the threads of God'), but for more than 300 years, the recipe and technique have only been passed down through the women in Abraini's family.
