From Sardinia. It is similar to Israeli couscous. Fregola comes in varying sizes, but typically consists of semolina dough that has been rolled into balls 2-3 mm in diameter and toasted in an oven. This gives it a wonderful, nutlike flavor that couscous lacks. It also is a rougher, grainier production than couscous, which many diners and cooks find more appealing.
