Tubetti Rigati Pasta from Rustichella d'Abruzzo
Small Ridged Pasta Ideal for Soups
A delightfully versatile pasta, tubettii rigati are short, ridged tubes that are equally great for soups, salads and baked preparations. Also known as ditali ("thimbles") or denti di vecchia ("old woman's teeth"), we love this bead-shaped pasta in pasta e fagioli(pasta and bean soup) or with a simple sauce of white beans, sun-dried tomatoes and garlic.
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.
