Artisan Paccheri Rigati

Product Weight:
13 oz


Paccheri Rigati is shorter than Rigatoni, but with that same lovable tube shape. These short, wide, ridged pasta tubes are named for the Neapolitan slang “slap” or “smack,” referring to the sound made when the sauce hits the pot full of hot pasta. Paccheri Rigati are great at capturing bites of ingredients and heartier sauces. They shine when paired with Italian sausage, meaty pasta sauces and chunky tomato sauces. They also make a great pasta cut for cheesy baked pasta dishes.

DeLallo Artisan Pasta comes from the town where pasta was born, a region near Naples, at the beginning of the Amalfi Coast. The art of making our pasta begins with the very best quality wheat. We carefully choose wheat with the highest gluten index, gluten content and protein content. All of these characteristics affect how the pasta cooks, as well as its taste and texture. The durum wheat is milled into coarse ground semolina flour and then carefully kneaded with cold, fresh, mineral-rich mountain spring water. We use a tradtional static cell drying process for our artisan pasta. Once pasta is extruded into shapes, it is transferred to a mesh screen then put into a drying cell with a controlled low temperature. This slow-drying method respects the ingredients and preserves the best characteristics of the wheat.
