In the town of Pianella, artisan pasta maker Gianluigi Peduzzi maintains the proud Rustichella d' Abruzzo tradition started by his grandfather. What makes Rustichella d'Abruzzo different from all other pastas? They are made from two natural ingredients: Stone-ground durum wheat flour from hard winter wheat and pure well water. These two ingredients, when mixed together and extruded through hand carved bronze dyes, produce textured pasta that holds the sauce beautifully.
Penne Lisce: A smooth, short tubular pasta with pointed ends like the tip of a fountain pen. Penne Rigate is slightly larger than its little brother Penne Lisce.
