Sicilian lemon zest is mixed into egg dough to augment its golden color and create supple noodles full of citrus aroma and flavor. Serve Lemon Laganelle Egg Tagliolini with a seafood ragù, with shrimp, clams or lobster, or mixed into fish soups or stews. This delicate flavored pasta is especially wonderful with melted butter, lemon zest and crabmeat.
About the Producer: In 1981, Nicolina Peduzzi decided to revive the pastificio (pasta factory) her father had started 50 years earlier in a small town in Abruzzo, Italy. More family members joined the business, which quickly grew into one of the most extensive artisanal pasta lines in Italy. Nicolina, the matriarch, remains the keeper of artisan core values, which she demonstrates personally at every incredible meal she cooks for the family. (And in fact, in the Peduzzi family, many important business decisions are made over a heaping dish of spaghetti!) It is these wonderful meals and moments shared at the family table that ensure that Rustichella d’Abruzzo will continue to maintain high levels of integrity, professionalism and passion for quality.
