Afeltra - Rigatoni

Regular price $5.00
Rigatoni get their name from the Italian righe or lines and are delicious in baked pasta dishes or paired with chunky sauces. Expertly crafted by Afeltra in Gragnano, Campania, it's no coincidence that this southern Italian city is also the birthplace of dry pasta making. As early as the 11th century, the first flourmills were constructed along the waterways flowing from Monti Lattari and by 1848, the premiere pastifici like Pastificio del Cavaliere Olimpio Afeltra were air-drying each piece of pasta in the Mediterranean breeze. Today, the more things change, the more they stay the same: Afeltra makes pasta in that same pastificio from 1848, uses that same water from Monti Lattari and air dries each shape in that same Mediterranean breeze.
