Spaghetti may be the world's most famous pasta, but with its rough texture and incredible bite, Rustichella d'Abruzzo Organic Spaghetti rises above the rest. From the Italian word spago meaning "string" or "thread," these are the strands you seek for perfect spaghetti and meatballs, superior spaghetti carbonara, the ultimate spaghetti cacio e pepe. For simple perfection, just toss with melted butter and abundant grated Parmigiano-Reggiano.
Recognizing that they could take their commitment to responsible growing methods one step further, the Peduzzi family of Rustichella d'Abruzzo has introduced a line of organic pasta, all certified organic by the Consorzio per il Controllo dei Prodotti Biologici, or CCPB.
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.
