Over the years the Pasta Maker has developed our own recipe for making pasta that is a close to real Italian pasta as possible. We use only semolina durum wheat flour to which we have added 'certified organic' pumpkin and our own blend of warming spices including clove and cinnamon.
Once the dough is ready, it is extruded through a bronze die which gives each piece of pipe rigate its ridges and a lightly rough surface, akin to a fine sandpaper. This ensures that the maximum amount of sauce clings to the pasta for an enhanced pasta eating experience.
All of our pasta dough is handmade in small batches and every step of production is overseen by The Pasta Maker to ensure the best quality every time. It is left to dry naturally and not packed until The Pasta Maker says it's ready.
Pipe Rigate is a nice chunky pasta that enjoys swimming around in rich sauces. The sauce will find each mountain, valley and cavern of this pasta, so don't skimp.
Pasta Nostra Pipe Rigate is available in a range of different flavors:
Flavors From The Farm - Organic Kale & Spinach - Plain
