Rustichella Organic Buckwheat Tortiglioni
In response to changing culinary needs across the globe, pasta pioneer Rustichella d’Abruzzo has created a new, one-of-a-kind pasta made exclusively with organic, gluten-free, GMO-free buckwheat flour. The result is subtle and delicious buckwheat flavor in an artisan pasta that cooks to an exquisite al dente bite.
Origins: Several stories are told about the origin of buckwheat in Europe. Most likely, it was introduced by the Arabs during the Middle Ages. Despite its name, buckwheat is not connected to wheat in any way, but is actually related to sorrel and rhubarb.
Pasta connoisseurs will be amazed by the extraordinary texture and delicate, nuanced flavor of this revolutionary buckwheat pasta. Forward-thinking chefs will be inspired to get creative. The possibilities are endless: Its hearty flavor and sumptuous texture play well with rich, luxurious dishes. Try it with sautéed zucchini, creamy ricotta, lemon zest and Parmigiano-Reggiano.
