PrimoGrano Spaghettoni

Primo grano meaning “first grain” in Italian, was an idea of pasta-maker Gianluigi Peduzzi, who wanted to bring back the flavors of authentic pasta made with 100% Abruzzo-grown wheat like those that his grandfather, Gaetano Sergiacomo, made at his mill in the town of Penne at the turn of the last century.

Every year, Rustichella d’Abruzzo and a small group of farmers from the surrounding hills of Pianella do a special planting of these selected varieties. After the July harvest, the wheat is kept protected in the hull, then milled to order and made into PrimoGrano Pasta in small batches throughout the year. The soft and fragrant wheat is made into some of the traditional shapes made by Gaetano Sergiacomo. Spaghettoni means larger spaghetti. The supple, toothsome bite of spaghettoni is especially satisfying. 

Wrapped in a bright green paper bag with white sprigs of wheat to celebrate these 100 % Abruzzo grains, PrimoGrano is pasta made for the true pasta lover. Fragrant as freshly baked bread with a supple and soft texture, PrimoGrano Spaghettoni are ideal served with simple sauces, such as in Spaghetti alla Nicolina. The simpler the preparation, the better, so one can taste the unique flavor of the Abruzzo-grown wheat.

Cooking Time: 9-11 minutes.
