Bell-Shaped Pasta made with Durum Wheat from Abruzzo, Italy

Now available in a larger 4.4-pound bulk pasta lover's size!

Torchio (also known as campane, or "bells") is a beautiful swirled pasta that shows a wonderful variety of textures when cooked. Let these torch-like shapes light the way to pasta Puttanesca or any other chunky sauce that can be cupped in the folds.

About the Producer:
In the town of Pianella in Italy's Abruzzo region, artisan pasta maker Gianluigi Peduzzi of Rustichella d'Abruzzo maintains a proud tradition started by his grandfather. He starts by choosing the best semolina from select durum wheat and mixing it with pure mountain spring water. The dough is then shaped using the same hand-carved bronze dies that Gianluigi’s grandfather used a century ago, giving the pasta just the right texture to capture all kinds of sauce. Lastly, slow drying in temperature controlled chambers for at least 56 hours imparts flavor and texture unlike any ordinary mass-produced pasta.

Not your store bought pasta!

Love the shape, texture and flavor of Torchio Pasta. Never knew pasta had a 'flavor', until I tried this pasta. Hard to describe, but try it and you'll know what I mean when I say 'flavor'. For a quick meal I used this pasta mixed with olive oil, garlic, fresh parsley and Ortiz tuna. Coming to the table for dinner my husband wasn't so sure -- but he commented about how good the pasta itself tasted -- and it also made him love Ortiz Tuna. This pasta will not disappoint.
