Penne Rigate is very famous for its versatility, thanks to its design and for the presence of deep grooves on the surface, which allow it to collect any kind of condiment, both on the inside and the outside. Made with certified organic ‘Senatore Cappelli’ durum wheat semolina and an artisan production process, Rustichella d’Abruzzo recommends it with all those meat-based sauces of the Italian tradition, such as ‘rosso alla Salsiccia’ sauce or ‘alla Genovese’ sauce.
Cooking time: 8-10 minutes.
Rustichella D’Abruzzo history began in 1924. Today Gianluigi and Stefania Peduzzi proudly continue their grandfather’s Abruzzan tradition using only top quality durum wheat semolina, bronze dies and pure mountain water to achieve that perfect texture and taste that made Rustichella D’Abruzzo the most recognized premium pasta, used by top chefs and available in delicatessen shops all over the world.
The drying process is carried out slowly at low temperatures, sometimes for as long as 50 hours at around 35/40 degrees, unlike industrial pasta where drying is carried out at 90 degrees for 4/5 hours.
