The Rustichella d'Abruzzo sauces will transport you to Italy. These sauces are made with high-quality ingredients such as those used by Nicolina Peduzzi at home in Pianella. Vine ripe tomatoes picked at the perfect ripeness point as well as the finest extra virgin olive oil from Abruzzo set these sauces into a category of their own.
Nicolina's secret magic touch can be tasted in each one of the jars. Is it the sofritto of carrots or the ripeness of the tomato that makes these sauces so sweet? Is it the generous amount of extra virgin olive oil and the Sicilian sea-salt that make them so perfect to use in other dishes, not just pasta? This sauce is ideal to use when making a rabbit cacciatore, or as a base to any fish stew. Either heated before serving or just mixed with the cooked pasta allows one to enjoy more freedom in the kitchen, much as Nicolina Peduzzi does.
These smaller jars of sauce from Rustichella d'Abruzzo contain the perfect amount of sauce needed to dress a package of 500 gr (1.1 lb) Rustichella d'Abruzzo pasta as the Italians do: Italians like to eat pasta with sauce, not sauce with pasta! Thanks to the rough surface of the pasta, the sauce will adhere beautifully and will be enough to serve 4 people. You can either heat the sauce or toss in the pasta bowl with the pasta directly after straining it.
