Rustichella - Pennucce Rigate 500g
Smaller penne-shaped pasta with ribbed surface. Penne are believed to have originated in Campania where it is served with a spicy all'arrabbiata sauce, or alla puttanesca. These smaller penne will hold less sauce, so they are idea for non-tomato sauces based on butter, fresh cheese or extra virgin olive oil.
Rustichella d'Abruzzo is one of the few genuinely artisan pasta manufactures operating in Italy. They use a blend of only the highest grade hard durum wheat which they can source from Italy, Canada and Australia to achieve the ideal balance of proteins, flavour and texture. Once the dough is mixed, it is pressed through bronze dies which gives the pasta a rough and porous surface. This allows the pasta to cook evenly and bind better with sauces and flavours. The pasta is dried at low temperatures over 36 to 50 hours in static drying rooms with regulated humidity to allow the proper fermentation of the semolina and the flavour to fully develop. The pasta will hold its shape during cooking, par-cooking and reheating.
