Italian Durum Wheat Spaghetti Flavored with Spinach
Spinach Tonnarelli Pasta from Italian producer, Rustichella d’Abruzzo, gets its pale olive green color and subtle herbaceous flavor from puréed spinach. Slightly thinner than spaghetti, this Italian flavored pasta shines in simple preparations like tossed with extra virgin olive oil and garnished with shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano and toasted walnuts, or topped with your favorite tomato sauce from Rustichella d’Abruzzo. Spinach Tonnarelli also pairs wonderfully with vegetable-based sauces—try it in Pasta Primavera, Spaghetti alla Nicolina (pasta with caramelized zucchini & Pecorino Romano cheese) or double up on the greens and serve with kale pesto.
About Rustichella d'Abruzzo: 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.
