Rustichella d'abruzzo pasta is made of the highest quality with selected durum wheat semolina, extruded through Bronze dies and air dried for 56 hours. These traditional elements give this specialty pasta its own taste.
Sagne a Pezzi, meaning "short broken pieces of lasagna," is made in a similar fashion as pizzichi, using a thin, curled lasagna die, then cut into squares about 1 inch in length. Soft, supple texture and quite amusing on the palate.
Because of the quality of the grain, serve this pasta with olive oil based sauces and minimal other ingredients in order to enjoy and exalt its flavor. Ideal with just butter and Parmigiano.
