Made with 100% Italian-Grown Organic Heirloom Wheat

Saragolla—an un-hybridized heirloom variety of wheat, which has been grown in Abruzzo for centuries—is cherished for the extraordinary quality of its semolina: higher in protein and fiber, and distinctively tasty. During the 19th century, Saragolla was so widely used throughout southern Italy that the term "saragolla" was commonly used to identify durum wheat in general.

Organic Saragolla Spaghetti pasta—made with 100% stone-ground organic Saragolla wheat semolato (semi-whole wheat flour) and pure spring water—is delicate and nutty in flavor with that perfect al dente bite Rustichella d'Abruzzo pasta is known for. 

How to use

Use Rustichella d'Abruzzo's Organic Saragolla Spaghetti in simple preparations that highlight the nuanced flavor of the pasta. Serve with classic tomato basil sauce, use in Italian-favorite Spaghetti Aglio e Olio or toss with seasonal vegetables and plenty of extra virgin olive oil.

About Rustichella d'Abruzzo

In 1924, 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 good alternative to "whole wheat" pasta

If you are looking for something with a little more density than traditional pasta (not to mention a bit more dietary bulk) and, like me, you find whole wheat pastas heavy, then this half-whole-wheat (semintegrale) is a good choice. it is tasty and nuttier than the regular rustichella but more tasty than any whole wheat I have tried. A good source of variety for frequent pasta eaters like me.
