Bucatini Pasta & Pesto Gift Set
Bucatini Pasta -A.K.A. That Wonderful Hollow Spaghetti
Deriving from the Italian word bucato, meaning "pierced," bucatini are long, thick spaghetti with a hole through the center. A common pasta shape in the area around Rome, bucatini is traditionally served all'Amatriciana,with a spicy sauce of tomatoes, dried chile and guanciale (salt-cured pork). In Sicily, they use these hollow noodles for pasta con le sarde (with sardines and wild fennel). Enjoy with any tomato-based sauce and slurp loudly, as the Romans do.
Pesto Genovese- A raw and unpasteurized pesto made with DOP (protected designation of origin) Riviera Basil from Liguria, grown just east of Genova, where pesto originated in the 1800s. Also made with D.O.P. Grana Padano cheese, this bright and flavorful "fresh" pesto is ideal with Ligurian pasta such as Trofie or Trenette. It is a perfect balance of the sweet basil and savory cheese.
ROASTED GARLIC SEA SALT-Each crystal of this savory sea salt is infused with real garlic, creating a "tres gourmet" version of traditional garlic salt. Use on meats, vegetables, and everything else.
