Rustichella d’Abruzzo 100% organic Saragolla Rigatoncini is characterised by the typical lining on the surface and a smaller diameter than the one of classic Rigatoni. This kind of pasta is always present in a lot of recipes and is perfect to collect the sauce thanks to its particularly rough and porous texture. We recommend it with Rustichella d’Abruzzo organic “Arrabbiata” or organic “Pomodoro e Basilico” sauces, which are made through slow boiling of 100% Italian tomatoes and Extra Virgin Olive Oil from the Aprutino-Pescarese area.
Cooking time: 10-12 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.
