Rustichella d’Abruzzo 100% organic Saragolla Rigatoncini is characterised by the typical lining on the surface and a smaller diameter than the one of classic Rigatoni. This kind of pasta is always present in a lot of recipes and is perfect to collect the sauce thanks to its particularly rough and porous texture. We recommend it with Rustichella d’Abruzzo organic “Arrabbiata” or organic “Pomodoro e Basilico” sauces, which are made through slow boiling of 100% Italian tomatoes and Extra Virgin Olive Oil from the Aprutino-Pescarese area. Cooking time: 10-12 minutes.
Symbol of the succulent Sicilian culinary tradition, busiate is a pasta-shaped form with thin tubes twisted on itself, a sort of macaroni. The name would be referable to the "buso", a particular knitting needle that was usually used to work fabrics such as wool and cotton. But the term could also refer to the busa, or the "disa", a graminacea typical of the Mediterranean that the farmers used in ancient times to tie the bundles of spikes. The Rustichella d'Abruzzo busiate are made with timilia, one of the ancient wheat varieties that Rustichella proposes to recover to offer a healthier perspective of being at the table. They can be served with tomato sauce and fish sauces.
Cooking time: 7-9 minutes.
The name originates from the dialectal form "i zit" (the spouses). In fact according to the culinary tradition of southern Italy the ziti are the pasta of solemn occasions, in particular of the wedding dinner. Unlike long ziti, to be broken by hand, this format is already broken and ready for cooking. They are produced with the timilia, one of the ancient wheat varieties that Rustichella proposes to rediscover for a healthy and genuine eating philosophy. Ideal with the cream of Rustichella d'Abruzzo basil or with a light dressing based on vegetables. Cooking time: 9-11 min.
