Rustichella D'Abruzzo - Fregola Tostata
Regular price $14.95
Originally from Sardinia, the making process of this type of artisan pasta consists of rubbing durum wheat semolina in a bowl with a mixture of water and saffron that is squirted into (which gives the wonderful intense yellow colour) and then small irregular balls are made by hand and toasted in an oven. The traditional recipe is Fregola Sarda with clams, or cooked as risotto with seafood and lemon zest, or with turnip greens, cherry tomatoes, garlic and Parmigiano Reggiano cheese. Another good recipe is Fregola Sarda with roasted courgettes, cherry tomatoes and chili-pepper olive oil.
