Rummo Conchiglioni Rigati is a shell-like Italian pasta than can be stuffed and baked. Most importantly, this variety of Rummo is part of the “Le Leggendarie” range which are artisan-method bronze-extruded pastas. Bronze extrusion gives the pasta a rough and porous surface that allows it to hold sauce better. The word ‘rigati’ refers to the ridges on its body that allow it to absorb more sauce as well as offering an alternative textural option for certain dishes (as compared to pasta ‘lisce’ or smooth pasta). Because this shape is hollow and ridged, it is suitable for a wide range of sauces. The sturdy shape will hold up well under chunky meat and vegetable sauces, while the hollow parts of the shells can act up to trap thinner sauces. Estimated cooking time is 12 minutes.
