This kit contains:
Organic Tomato Sauce With Basil: With a jar of this organic tomato and basil sauce in your pantry, you’ll never be at a loss for what to make for dinner again. It starts with ripe tomatoes from 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. The tomatoes’ natural sugars are concentrated by those long hours in the sun, giving them a well-balanced flavor profile that sings with ripe sweetness and umami goodness. They’re pureed fresh into a silky-smooth passata, then cooked quickly with sweet sauteed onion, olive oil, and fresh Genovese basil. The result is a classically uncomplicated, deeply flavorful sauce that tastes homemade without the fuss.
Pesto From Trapani: The classic pesto from Genoa gets a southern twist in this pesto from Trapani, made by the brothers at Kazzen. Trapani is a port city on the western coast of Sicily known for its crescent-shaped coastline—according to myth, it was formed when a sickle fell off the chariot of Demeter, the goddess of the harvest! Historically, Trapani was an important center for fishing and salt production, and its picturesque salt pans, the low-lying marshes where sea water evaporates to form natural salt crystals, are an international tourist destination.
Organic Puttanesca Sauce: With a jar of this organic puttanesca sauce from Bio Orto in your pantry, you’ll have a bold Neapolitan dinner ready in as much time as takes to boil pasta. It starts with ripe tomatoes from Puglia, the “heel” of Italy’s boot, where the southern heat is tempered by cool breezes from the surrounding Mediterranean Sea. The tomatoes’ natural sugars are concentrated by long hours in the sun, giving them a well-balanced flavor profile that sings with ripe sweetness and umami goodness. They’re cooked with olives, capers, chiles, and plenty of garlic to capture the essence of this classic Italian dish.
Rigatoni Alla Silana Spice Kit: For all the umami-lovers out there, this rigatoni alla silana spice blend from Tutto Calabria is for you. With earthy dried mushrooms, eggplant, onions, garlic, and parsley, it will transport you straight to Calabria's historic mountain region of La Sila. You'd be hard-pressed to find a menu not offering pasta "alla silana" there—it’s a time-honored favorite. With this convenient blend of traditional flavorings, all you need to add is a packet of pasta and a can of tomatoes for a flavorful meal in minutes.
Tomato Passata: Meet your new kitchen sidekick: passata di pomodorini from i Sapori di Corbara. Pomodorini (“little tomatoes”) are bite-sized, bell-shaped cherry tomatoes grown only near the Amalfi Coast. Even more highly prized than the famous San Marzano, they have a distinctive sweet-tart profile that can’t be beat. These tomatoes are peeled and strained to make this uncooked puree, then packed in glass jars so no tinny aftertaste can ruin their fresh, vibrant flavor.
Vermicelli Lunghi Pasta: Nobody has taken their vermicelli longer than Setaro, whose lunghi pastas are nearly two feet long. This extra-long version is a memento from the old days when pasta makers didn’t have a way to precisely measure and cut their product. This pasta is meant to be broken before it goes into the pot, a job that will delight any child who wants to help out in the kitchen.
Gemelli Pasta: The double helix of this Gemelli pasta is an optical illusion. While its name comes from the Italian word for “twins,” referring to the shape that looks like two strands of dough coiled around each other, it’s made with just one strand that’s been cleverly twisted back on itself. Originally from the southern Italian region of Puglia, Gemelli is an extremely versatile shape similar to fusilli but with a slightly looser twist. The short curls hide a hollow core ready to absorb all your flavorful sauces for one delicious bite after another.
Porcini Mushroom Risotto Kit: From field to table, this porcini mushroom risotto kit from Cascina Belvedere has been lovingly crafted by one of Italy’s most passionate farming families. One of the few companies that manage the entire production process, from growing the rice to harvest, milling, and packaging, Cascina Belvedere is absolutely dedicated to the very best rice and risotto. All that care results in a pretty incredible product! This all-in-one kit contains everything you need to make a delicious porcini mushroom risotto in minutes, with no preservatives or artificial flavorings.

They come directly from the traditional peasant cuisine, are genuine and rich in fiber, and are a quick dish to prepare.
