Rustichella d’Abruzzo Cavatelli
From an Italian expression of cavare, meaning “to get, to carve,” this small pasta has the five thumbprints reminiscent of the motion of getting or grabbing something. The fingerprints are left on the dough from the slight rolling motion of the pasta-maker. Perfect in soup or with hearty meat or vegetable ragu. Rustichella d’Abruzzo pasta is made with the finest quality grains, blended with pure mountain spring water, extruded through bronze dies and slowly air-dried for a rustic texture that holds sauce beautifully.
