PrimoGrano Pasta Trio from Rustichella d'Abruzzo
Heirloom Wheat Pasta Trio from Abruzzo, Italy
You'll get one bag of each, Traghetti, Sange a Pezzi and Penne Rustiche, saving 10%.
PrimoGrano, meaning “first grain,” was the idea of Rustichella pasta maker Gianluigi Peduzzi, who sought to bring back the flavors of authentic pasta made with 100% Abruzzo-grown wheat like those that his grandfather made at the turn of the last century. Gianluigi has partnered with farmers in Abruzzo to revive local heirloom wheat varieties, many of them nearly extinct and all of them very high in protein & ideal for making pasta. The soft and fragrant semolina from these summer wheats is used to craft some of the traditional shapes made by Gianluigi's grandfather: traghetti, penne rustiche and sagne a pezzi.
Fragrant as freshly baked bread and with a supple, delicate texture, PrimoGrano is best enjoyed with light or simple olive oil-based sauces to allow the unique flavor to shine through.
