Elevate your everyday pasta with this organic mezzi rigatoni from Zaccagni, master pasta makers in Abruzzo. Shorter than the standard rigatoni, this pasta is an unexpectedly quirky take on a favorite shape. The rigatoni are slightly ridged to attract sauce, and are robust and flavorful thanks to the organic semolina flour Zaccagni uses. It’s a versatile shape that will find a home in all of your favorite pasta dishes.

The only ingredients in this artisan pasta are minimally processed, organically grown whole wheat semolina flour and pure spring water from the Majella mountains. The dough is pressed through 100-year-old bronze dies, coveted among pasta aficionados. Bronze dies create a rough texture as the pasta passes through them, leaving an uneven surface that’s perfect for absorbing sauce, making every bite more flavorful. Finally, it’s slow-dried at low temperatures to ensure it cooks up tender yet toothsome, with just the right amount of al dente resistance.

Abruzzo is a verdant gem on the eastern coast of Italy, midway down the country’s “boot.” The region is known for its wines, most famously montepulciano d’Abruzzo, and has miles of coastline on the Adriatic Sea. Abruzzo also has the highest concentration of national parkland in Europe, including the stunning peaks of the Majella mountains, home to golden eagles and stunning wildflowers. Zaccagni’s facility is set amongst the foothills of the Majella range, in the medieval town of Miglianico.

Founded by Gianfranco Zaccagni, the company is fiercely proud of its Abruzzo home. Look closely at their pasta packaging and you’ll notice that the transparent window is in the shape of the region! Zaccagni is a testament to the idea that when different experiences and cultures meet, the results are unique.

Mezzi rigatoni is wonderful tossed with chunky ingredients like sausage, vegetables, or even a hearty ragu. It’s also a good option for baked casseroles, as its sturdy shape can hold up to plenty of melty cheese. For baked dishes, subtract a few minutes from the recommended cook time and drain the pasta when extremely al dente, since it will finish cooking in the oven.
