(1 customer review)

Pennucce are the smallest of the penne varieties. This shape is believed to have originated in Campania. These smaller penne will hold less sauce, so they are ideal for non-tomato sauces based on butter, fresh cheese or extra virgin olive oil.

Product Description

Pennucce are the smallest of the penne varieties. This shape is believed to have originated in Campania. These smaller penne will hold less sauce, so they are ideal for non-tomato sauces based on butter, fresh cheese or extra virgin olive oil. We love using this pasta for Mac ‘n cheese!

about the producer

Rustichella d’Abruzzo is one of the few genuinely artisan pasta manufacturers operating in Italy. They use a blend of only the highest grade hard durum wheat which they can source from Italy, Canada and Australia to achieve the ideal balance of proteins, flavour and texture. Once the dough is mixed, it is pressed through bronze dies which gives the pasta a rough and porous surface. This allows the pasta to cook evenly and bind better with sauces and flavours. The pasta is dried at low temperatures over 36 to 50 hours in static drying rooms with regulated humidity to allow the proper fermentation of the semolina and the flavour to fully develop. The pasta will hold its shape during cooking, par-cooking and reheating.

Rustichella d’Abruzzo is found deep in the green Vestine hills, in the central region of Abruzzo on the Adriatic coast. In 1924 Gaetano Sergiacomo established the business in the province of Penne, to conserve traditional methods of pasta production. Three generations later, Rustichella is still a family business managed by Gaetano’s grandson, Gianluigi Peduzzi.

Rustichella is absolutely committed to traditional production techniques, and a quality artisan product.
