Lasagna Noodles, Meet Fettuccine Pasta

Riccia, meaning "curly" in Italian, is a long, flat pasta shape with ruffled edges, somewhat resembling skinny lasagna noodles. The frilly ribbons have great texture and look great on the plate. We especially like how they take regular old pasta Bolognese from fine to festive.

About the Producer:
In 1929, Gaetano Sergiacomo started making rustic pasta using the whole wheat flour produced at his family’s stone mill in the small town of Penne in Abruzzo. In 1981, his daughter, Nicolina Peduzzi, decided to revive the pastificio (pasta factory), naming the new product line Rustichella d’Abruzzo. Soon after, Nicolina’s adult children Gianluigi and Stefania joined the family business, and within a few years, the small pastificio had grown into one of the most extensive artisanal pasta lines in Italy. Today, Rustichella d’Abruzzo offers a diverse selection of pasta, pasta sauce, holiday goods and more.

A surprising pasta to discover

I finally got around to trying Rustichella d'Abruzzo's riccia pasta and what a great discovery - it a large enough noodle to convey plenty of flavor, it has a wonderfully toothsome texture and has real substance to it. I love it Bolognese but I also made it one night with pesto because I had run out of orrechietti and trenette. Turns out it works beautifully with the pesto as well. All in all, it's a great find.
