The Peduzzi family recognizes that the care and respect for growing methods and processing procedures, which have always been part of Rustichella d'Abruzzo, could be taken one step further, and thus the organic line was born. All ingredients for the pasta are certified organic by Istituto Mediterraneo di Certificazione, or I.M.C.
The dimpled shape holds sauce perfectly.

In my experience, tasty, whole-wheat pasta is hard to find, even more so if you want an organic product. This pasta is delicious. Each little pasta ear has a warm, golden wheat-y taste and a firm “bite” when cooked al dente (the package gives an estimate for cooking time, but I cook it for 14-16 minutes at a slower boil to cook it through evenly). This flavorful pasta is faithfully Italian, with a relatively even but “grippy” texture. I like it folded into broccoli steamed then sautéed in olive oil with lots of chopped garlic, a couple of anchovies and a sprinkle of dried chili flakes. I love it.
