The Pineapple is originally from South America. Indios used to call it ANANA, from the word NANA (perfume), while Conquistadores used to call it PINE CONE OF THE INDIES or ROYAL PINE CONE. The pineapple is a symbol of welcome and hospitality and has a delicious sweetness on the inside. The amount of vitamins and natural constituents make the pineapple a healthy fruit.
Cooking time: 13-15 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.
