We are pleased today to offer new pasta shape of Bronze-cut Pasta – 100% Italian Wheat. This Bronze cut Rigatoni pasta are a form of tube-shaped pasta of varying lengths and diameters originating in Italy.They are larger than penne and ziti, and sometimes slightly curved, though not as curved as elbow macaroni. Rigatoni characteristically have ridges down their length, sometimes spiraling around the tube, and unlike penne, rigatoni’s ends are cut square perpendicular to the tube walls instead of diagonally, they are made from 100% Italian durum wheat grown in Puglia in Southern Italy and are produced using a bronze die. Pasta produced in bronze pasta dies are known as bronze-cut pasta, bronze cut means that the raw pasta dough is extruded through a piece of bronze metal with a hole or holes sized for the shape of pasta desired. Compared to regular pasta, it has a more saturated golden color and a rougher, more porous texture than the one made in Teflon dies. The most crucial benefit of bronze die cut pasta is that it results in noodles that have a slightly rough surface. A rougher surface helps sauce and other recipe ingredients stick to the noodle, creating the perfect bite with every bite. Quality has always been a question of method and that is why our pasta is bronze-cut, a traditional procedure which roughens its surface, so that it can hold sauces and seasonings much better. Our pasta is dried slowly, which is the best way of preserving its excellent organoleptic and nutritional properties. Rigatoni is best suited for chunky meat sauces such as stews and ragù. All the products we offer are rich in taste and ensure a healthy and balanced diet, as they are prepared using simple and natural ingredients.
