LUMACONI PASTA - RUSTICHELLA D'ABRUZZO
Lumaconi translates to big snails and indeed this pasta looks like large snail shells. The can be filled with ricotta and spinach, or meat ragu and oven baked, or cooked and serves as regular pasta with a suitably hearty sauce.
Rustichella d'Abruzzo is one of the few genuinely artisan pasta manufactures 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.
