Primo grano meaning “first grain” in Italian, was an idea of pasta-maker Gianluigi Peduzzi, who wanted to bring back the flavors of authentic pasta made with 100% Abruzzo-grown wheat like those that his grandfather, Gaetano Sergiacomo, made at his mill in the town of Penne at the turn of the last century.
Spaghettoni means larger spaghetti. A regular spaghetto is 1.95 mm thick, and Spaghettoni are 2.10 mm thick. The supple, toothsome bite of Spaghettoni is especially satisfying.
PrimoGrano Spaghettoni are ideal to served with simple sauces, such as in Spaghetti alla Nicolina. The simpler the preparation, the better, so one can taste the unique flavor of the Abruzzo-grown wheat.
Cooking Time: 9-11 minutes.
