For the 680 gr (24 oz) jars of pasta sauce from Rustichella d'Abruzzo, due to their larger size and shorter pasteurization time, we suggest you add a small amount of extra virgin olive oil and heat before tossing with the pasta. Thanks to the larger amount of tomato inside the jar and volume produced, now a large group can enjoy the flavors of Italy in this sauce. A great pasta deserves a great sauce.
We have been very lucky to share many wonderful meals at home with the Peduzzi family, owners of Rustichella d’Abruzzo pasta. Spending time in the kitchen with Nicolina Peduzzi, Gianlugi and Stefania’s mother, is a privilege and a wonderful learning experience. As Nicolina prepares the perfect sauce for a particular shape of pasta, one can’t help but notice the incredible quality of her ingredients. Her sauces are simple and made with produce from the family farm near Moscufo, on the Vestini hills overlooking the Adriatic Sea to the East and the great Apennine Mountains to the West.
