From the word affettare, meaning ""to slice,"" fettuccine are ribbons cut from flat sheets of pasta. The noodles are similar to tagliatelle, but a wider surface makes fettuccine even better at catching rich, creamy sauces like the famous Alfredo. We also enjoy the hearty mouthfeel and great texture of fettuccine with a chunky ragù.
This pasta is made without eggs. If it's egg pasta you seek, try the classic Egg Fettuccine or, for something a little different, egg fettucine in Lemon, Porcini or Saffron flavor.
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.
