Rustichella D'Abruzzo

Rustichella - Tonnarelli al Nero di Seppia (Squid Ink) 500g


Tonnarelli is a pasta shape that is similar to spaghetti, with a slightly larger diameter, with origins in the Lazio region. Rustichella infuses the durum wheat pasta dough with fresh cuttlefish ink. Match this pasta with sauces that feature tomato and basil, or try "mare e monti" which is a combination of guanciale and prawns.


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.
