Package contents

The package contains: two types of pasta, Spaghettoni Benedetto Cavalieri, an institution for true gourmets, and Rigatoni Pasta di Gragnano PGI from the Campania-based company La Rigorosa. A selection of cured meats perfect for adding flavour to sauces: guanciale, for lovers of pasta all’amatriciana; smoked pancetta and nduja, for those who love strong and spicy flavours. Two types of cheese perfect to be grated such as Pecorino Romano PDO and Pastorino sardo. Finally, a sweet Apulian tomato sauce and an extra virgin olive oil made with 100% Apulian olives.

Pasta

Pasta is one of the most famous dishes of the Italian culinary tradition and a symbol of Italy all over the world. In this package we have chosen two iconic pasta shapes, spaghetti and rigatoni, to tell the story of this ancient dish. Benedetto Cavalieri’s Spaghettoni, in 500g format, have a diameter of about 2.8mm, larger than classic spaghetti. This pasta is made using a bronze alloy die with funnel-shaped holes so that the pressure is not strong but gentle to shape the dough. For its production, semolina of hard grains is used, which are cultivated in the places of origin of this wonderful product on the windy hills of southern Italy. The Spaghettoni are then dried at low temperature for a time that is around 40 hours, thus obtaining a balanced cooking on the whole surface of the spaghettone. The cooking time is 16 to 18 minutes, a long time that allows them to be cooked to their full potential.

In addition to the Spaghettoni, we have selected Rigatoni Pasta di Gragnano PGI, a pasta known all over the world thanks to the Protected Geographical Indication mark and an excellence from Campania. These Rigatoni are made from the highest quality durum wheat semolina and are still bronze drawn. Thanks to their consistency, they are perfect for tasty sauces, as they retain their seasonings perfectly.

Cold Cuts

The cured meats we have selected for this package dedicated to Pasta are the best to combine with this Italian typical product for many tasty recipes. First of all the seasoned Guanciale, a classic for many Italian pasta sauces such as Pasta all’Amatriciana, Pasta alla Gricia, Pasta with cherry tomatoes and guanciale, Pasta alla zozzona, Pasta with courgettes and guanciale. Another cured meat that we have selected because of its perfect flavour in combination with so many other ingredients is smoked bacon, ideal to make recipes like a real chef. From a simple recipe with tomato sauce and smoked bacon, to Pasta alla Carbonara (for those who like smoked bacon instead of guanciale, but in the original Roman recipe this is considered a sacrilege!), and Pasta with smoked bacon and courgettes. Finally, we have selected a sausage that goes perfectly with many recipes to give them a strong and spicy twist of flavour: Nduja. This ingredient can be used on its own as a condiment for pasta or you can give it a more refined touch by combining it with mint, garlic and oil (you can find this tasty recipe in our dedicated section of the website).

Cheeses

The cheeses we have selected for this pack go perfectly with many recipes and are meant to be grated on top of a plate of tasty pasta. Pecorino Romano PDO cheese is the perfect ally for many recipes such as the world-famous Pasta Cacio e Pepe or Pasta with Pecorino Romano PDO and Guanciale. In addition to this cheese, we have chosen another Italian classic, Pastorino Sardo, which is perfect for recipes such as Pasta Cacio e Pepe with a Sardinian variant instead of Pecorino Romano or Rigatoni with mushrooms and Pastorino Sardo.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil Medium Fruity
