Rustichella D'Abruzzo Spaghettini
Shape of the same length of spaghetti but with a smaller diameter and thus shorter cooking time, Spaghettini pasta combines well with Rustichella d’Abruzzo fish sauces or simply with garlic, oil and hot pepper. Cooking time: 6-8 minutes.
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.
