All the taste of corn contained in a speciality made exclusively with organic controlled and selected raw materials from Italy. We recommend it with Rustichella d’Abruzzo seafood-based sauces, such as “alla Napoletana” or “alla Puttanesca”. Cooking time: 10-12 minutes.
Despite what many people might think, buckwheat is not a cereal, rather a herbaceous annual plant, belonging to the family of Polygonaceae. In Italian it is called grano saraceno (Saracen wheat): it is called like this because, according to the two current hypotheses, it was brought to Italy by the Saracens or because it reminds of the dark colour of the Saracens’ skin. The high biological value of its proteins, which contain proportionately the eight essential amino acids, allows it to stand apart from the common cereals. Furthermore, it has remineralising and energising properties. This pasta represents also a tasty alternative to a gourmet first course. We recommend it with Rustichella d’Abruzzo organic Pesto alla Genovese, a bit of Pecorino Romano cheese and 100% organic extra virgin olive oil. Cooking time: 6-8 minutes.
Perle di patate (potato pearls) have an even softer and more substantial texture. We recommend it with two particular Rustichella d’Abruzzo condiments: organic Pesto alla Genovese for the lovers of “healthy” recipes and organic “alla Arrabbiata” sauce for the lovers of spicy flavours. Cooking time: 2 minutes.
