Rustichella Pasta Spaghetti
  • by Rustichella d'Abruzzo
  • Italy

Gianluigi Peduzzi grew up watching his Nonno make pasta in his small Italian village of Pianella, and today the tradition lives on in his Rustichella Pasta Spaghetti. Made from heirloom wheat grown in Italy’s Abruzzo region and harvested in the summer months, this rich, hearty pasta has a rustic essence and toasty, nutty flavor. Best cooked to a perfectly ‘al dente’ texture, this traditional spaghetti is best paired with 1932 Pomodoro Basil Sauce and a few shavings of Murray’s Parmigiano Reggiano.

“I eat a ridiculous amount of pasta and Rustichella is one of my favorite makers. This spaghetti clings onto sauce much better than most other brands I’ve tried because of the traditional tools used to make the pasta.”

  • Once mixed with mountain water, the pasta is pressed through a traditional bronze die, giving it a distinct, hearty texture.
