This dish has been enjoyed on Sundays and at festivals for centuries in northern Italy. Derived from Bologna, Italy, Ragù alla Bolognese is a hearty meat-based sauce that is traditionally served with the broad, flat noodles of ancient grain Tagliatelle pasta.
The Smuggler’s Pasta
Paccheri pasta was designed in the 1600’s to smuggle the robust and flavorful Italian garlic over the snowy Alps into Prussia, where the garlic was weak. For a few centuries Paccheri snuck under the watchful eyes of the Prussian government, establishing its mischievous and brave attributes in the hearts of all Italians. Since then, Paccheri has continued to smuggle bold and delicious flavors to its patrons. Enjoy Paccheri stuffed with ricotta cheese and baked with a meaty Bolognese sauce.
Ancient Grain Meets Modern Technology
Bona Furtuna Ancient Grain Pasta celebrates the spirit of Italian land and tradition. Once known as the granary of Rome, Sicily’s rich climate presents ideal growing conditions for our 100% organic, non-GMO grains. Perciasacchi and Russello are sublime heirloom wheat grains that grow tall, develop strong elasticity and create an authentic al dente texture in each noodle. Using modern practices, grain is ground domestically, rinsed minimally and repeatedly milled. Next, our Italian artisan heirloom pasta is shaped in bronze dies, cut by hand, and placed on racks to air dry in the Mediterranean breeze.
I have purchased several of the Bona Furtuna products and they are of the highest quality and as. Sicilian I should know. The pasta, olive oil are the best you can buy in the USA. The customer service is outstanding
