Rustichella Strozzapreti (250g)
Italian short pasta in the shape of long torches. Made with durum wheat semolina.
This kind of pasta that looks like retinal rods derives its name from the popular and ironic gluttony of priests (literally “priestchokers”). Recommended also with Rustichella d’Abruzzo “alla Genovese” and “alla Pescatora” sauces. Cooking time: 13-18 minutes.
Rustichella pasta is made with selected durum wheat grown in the Abruzzo region and spring water from the Apennine mountains. The wheat is stone ground and mixed to form a dough which is extruded through bronze dies. These dies create a rough surface texture which enables sauce to cling to the pasta and give the pasta it’s unique grainy surface. The pasta is dried at low temperatures for approximately 50 hours, and it is this slow fermentation process that gives the pasta a superior taste and guarantees even cooking.
Keep in a cool, dry place away from light and direct heat.
