Italian food producer Bona Furtuna announces new ancient grain pasta
CORLEONE, Italy, July 19, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Award-winning food producer Bona Furtuna is delighted to announce the expansion of its organic ancient grain pasta category with four new cuts: Casarecce, Rigatoni, Paccheri and Linguine.
âWhat I like about this particular product release is that we’re not only showing cuts that are well known to our customers, but also bringing two new variations that can be a bit more unique to the general public. “, declares Margaux Maertens, Marketing Manager at Bona Furtuna. “Like our other pastas, the new offerings are all cut from bronze, a traditional Italian pasta-making process, producing a coarser, more porous surface for sauces to cling to.”
Casarecce and Paccheri are from Sicily, bringing unique textures to traditional and more modern Italian style dishes. The casarecce, rolled loosely lengthwise and twisted, looks like old rolls and is originally used to elevate pesto dishes. The wide, wide tubes of Paccheri are often stuffed with ricotta or sausage and served with a red sauce.
Maertens continued, âWe are delighted to announce the upcoming release of three extremely rare handmade pasta shapes in the heart of Sardinia, and exclusive to the Bona Furtuna brand. We work with a boutique producer in Sardinia to handcraft each individual shape, involving the local community to share this unique and traditional experience. Due to the rarity of each paste, once officially launched there will be a very limited supply of these offers. So stay tuned in October – just in time for National Pasta Month. “
Bona Furtuna’s pasta cuts are available online at www.bonafurtuna.com. Some pasta can be found at your local retailer.
