A staple throughout Italy, spezzitano recipes vary depending on who's cooking. Where some use beef, others use veal. While some are purists, many add tomatoes and herbs to add complexity. In northern Italy, spezzitano di manzo is served with polenta, while in the south, it is more typically enjoyed with crusty bread. At the end of the day, a good soffritto, fresh aromatics, and lots of patience, served alongside a beautiful Etna Rosso, will make this dish a family favorite in no time.
What's Cooking This Month:
Indulge in our organic Sicilian ancient grain Busiate and Bucatini pastas and discover our delicious Eggplant Bucatini recipe.
Add sauce to include a jar of our organic Sweet Pepper Pesto.
Eat Like an Italian
Found on menus globally, Bucatini is a favorite throughout Italy. Though perfect for saucy dishes such as carbonara and bolognese, one dish that is synonymous with this pasta is bucatini all’Amatriciana. Boasting deeply flavorful guanciale and rich tomatoes, this simple dish will have you eating like an Italian every chance you get.
Tantalizing Twists of Authenticity
With a touch of sweetness, herbal hints, sunkissed grain, and accents of cinnamon, Bona Furtuna Busiate provides a great al dente texture and elastic structure. Representative to what humans have been eating for thousands of years and easy for digestion, feel the nutritional benefits of ancient grain pasta in every bite. Impeccably paired with pestos and seafood, “Busiate with Trapanese Pesto” is a pleasingly light yet flavorsome dinner.
Flavors of Earth and Sun
Creamy, smooth, and undeniably sweet, this sweet pepper pesto exemplifies the comforting flavors of ripe red bell peppers. Each bite emits the honest flavors of unity between earth and sun. Pair with pizza, scallops, and dry white wine.
