In the spirit of Giada's newest cookbook, Eat Better, Feel Better, this box is dedicated to Giada's favorite clean-eating staples from Italy. It all starts with food, and good food begins with a well-stocked pantry—and this box will get you started! It's got everything you need to make Giada's pasta with spicy Calabrian chili shrimp, on page 182. While the recipe calls for penne, it's a great dish to experiment with all sorts of short pasta. You can get it with or without the signed copy of the beloved cookbook alongside. Buon appetito!!
This box contains:
Paccheri Pasta: Our Giadzy organic paccheri is a delicious pasta with a colorful past. Its name comes from the Neapolitan word for "slap," for the noise that happens when the cooked pasta is mixed with sauce.
Organic Sun-Dried Tomatoes in Extra Virgin Olive Oil: These organic sun-dried tomatoes from Bio Orto are a true flavor bomb. They’re grown in Puglia, the “heel” of Italy’s boot, where the southern heat (the region gets, on average, 2,500 hours of sun a year!) is tempered by cool breezes from the surrounding Mediterranean Sea. They’re hand-picked, then dried in that same intense sunshine the way Pugliese farmers have done for centuries.
Crushed Calabrian Chili Paste: With a mellow, fruity heat that lingers on the palate but won't overwhelm, there's just no substitute for this crushed Calabrian chile paste from Tutto Calabria. The quintessential Italian chile, they are beloved around the country for the lively heat they bring to any dish. Similar in Scoville level to cayenne but with a depth of flavor unlike any other, this paste of fresh chiles crushed and preserved in olive oil is a must-have for any spice lover’s pantry. It’s one of Giada’s essential Italian ingredients.
Organic Sicilian Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Fruity and flavorful, this organic extra virgin olive oil from Centonze is another Sicilian stunner. It’s made with organically grown Nocellara del Belice olives that are picked by hand in southwestern Sicily, near the historic Ancient Greek settlement of Selinunte. Oils made with this native Sicilian olive are intensely flavored, deep green, and layered with herbal and fruit notes. This oil is presented in a gorgeously decorated tin that pays homage to Sicily’s rich history and makes a stunning addition to your countertop. (Bonus: The airtight, opaque tin protects the volatile compounds in the oil, keeping it fresh and tasty!)
