Rustichella D'Abruzzo

Rustichella - Taccozzette 500g


This diamond-shaped pasta is also referred to as 'sagne' in the mountainous parts of Abruzzo, Molise and Lazio; and it resembles 'maltagliati' rough-square/rhombus cut pasta shapes from northern Italy. For a traditional Abruzzese dish, try this pasta shape to make "Sagne e Fagioli", a hearty dish of a tomato-based sauce and borlotti beans (or chickpeas). It can also be accompanied by a chicken or vegetable broth with crispy pancetta and chilli pepper.


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.

The pasta is extruded through bronze dies and 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.
