Fregula (also fregola) is a type of pasta from Sardinia. It is similar to Israeli couscous. Fregula 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.

A typical preparation of fregula is to simmer it in a tomato-based sauce with clams.

This food is typical of the south western part of Sardinia, and was imported by Ligurian immigrants come from the Genoese colony of Tabarka in Tunisia.
