Cannelloni Shells from Rustichella d'Abruzzo
No-Boil "Manicotti" Cannelloni Shells
You say cannelloni, I say manicotti. Let's call the whole thing delicious. These cannelloni shells are ready to use, no boiling required. Simply stuff the pasta with your filling of choice (we like ricotta, spinach and prosciutto), cover with sauce (a béchamel or any tomato sauce will do) and bake.
About the Producer:
In the town of Pianella in Italy's Abruzzo region, artisan pasta maker Gianluigi Peduzzi of Rustichella d'Abruzzo maintains a proud tradition started by his grandfather. He starts by choosing the best semolina from select durum wheat and mixing it with pure mountain spring water. The dough is then shaped using the same hand-carved bronze dies that Gianluigi’s grandfather used a century ago, giving the pasta just the right texture to capture all kinds of sauce. Lastly, slow drying in temperature controlled chambers for at least 56 hours imparts flavor and texture unlike any ordinary mass-produced pasta. Learn more about Rustichella d'Abruzzo.
