Italian Pasta made with 30% Pumpkin & Durum Wheat

Pumpkin Torchio from Rustichella d’Abruzzo is made with 30% pumpkin purée and durum wheat semolina, so it actually tastes like pumpkin and retains its beautiful orange color after cooking.

The nutty, richness of the pasta lends itself to any meaty or cheesy sauce—try it in macaroni and cheese with equally nutty cheeses, like gruyere, Comté and Parmigiano-Reggiano. Or toss with browned butter and top with fried sage leaves to enjoy the pasta’s naturally sweet pumpkin flavor. Our friend, food writer, Elizabeth Minchilli, loves Pumpkin Torchio with a quick sauce of chicken liver sausage.

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.

Fall Favorite now All Year Round

I was first introduced to Pumpkin Torchio Pasta through Sinskey Wines during the Holidays. It is an excellent paring with a squash (butternut) and pancetta! Now a family & friends favorite all year round.

S Blasetti

great pasta

Allen Douglas
very tasty

I know it sounds gimmicky but this pasta comes out with a mild interesting flavor -- not at all that pumpkin spice horror which shows up every fall. a nice change from their regular pasta (though i like that too).

Barbara Riley

I love this pasta , taste great with a white sauce

Perfect pairing with Red Wines from Sinskey!

We received this pasta as a gift from Sinskey Vineyards. It was so fantastic (using Maria’s recipe with winter squash), that we had to find more!

Thank you Market Hall Foods!
