90 Seconds to Pasta Perfection

23 August 2017

Il Ciclista

90-Second Rapida Spaghetti—from pasta innovators Rustichella d'Abruzzo—is still made the old-fashioned way: crafted with best-quality semolina and mountain spring water, extruded through bronze dies and slowly dried at low temperatures.

It's the innovative U-shape, thanks to a new patented bronze die—see how the strands are slightly curved? The gaps close up during boiling!—that allows for quick cooking and gives it that classic al dente bite we all crave.
