Castelluccio lentils—a prized lentil varietal from Umbria, Italy—are beloved for their delicate earthy, nutty flavor, thin skin and supple texture. These Italian brown lentils from Casa Corneli also hold their shape after cooking with the perfect al dente bite.
These Italian brown lentils also take well to long cooking. Cook them low and slow for rich, stick-to-your-ribs ragùs, soups and braises. Their deep, nutty flavor make them the ideal mate for pork chops, sausages and slow-roasted lamb.
