Paccheri Rigate No150Rummo
Paccheri Rigate pasta is a large, hollow, tube-shaped type of pasta. 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 ‘rigate’ 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). This shape is similar to Rigatoni but with a much larger diameter (almost like a mini cannelloni). Having a ridge and being bronze extruded this pasta is ideal for thick sauces. The sturdy shape will hold up well under chunky meat and vegetable sauces.
