Saragolla is a variety of wheat, an un-hybridized heirloom grain, which has been grown in Abruzzo for centuries. During the 19th century, Saragolla was so widely used throughout southern Italy that the term "saragolla" was commonly used to identify durum wheat in general.
Saragolla is considered precious for the extraordinary quality of its semolina: higher in protein and fiber, and distinctively tasty. Saragolla pasta stands out for its distinguishing light brown hue and nutty flavor. Rustichella d'Abruzzo pasta is made with carefully selected 100% stone-ground Saragolla wheat semolato (semi-whole wheat flour) and pure spring water.
From the Italian word spago meaning "string or thread," there is no pasta in the world more famous than Spaghetti. We strongly recommend you serve this pasta with olive oil based sauces or simple tomato sauce so you may enjoy its flavor and texture.
