Pastificio Carleschi Gigli Rigati Einkorn Pasta, 400g


We have run out of stock for this item.

These wholegrain gigli rigati carry the subtle honey, honeycomb, chamomile, vanilla, cinnamon and white chocolate flavours of einkorn grain. Ridged gigli rigati pasta are typical of Tuscany, the name meaning striped lilies. They carry sauce well and are superb with creamy vegetable sauces, especially leafy vegetables like cavolo nero.

Einkorn (Triticum monococcum subsp. monococcum) is the most ancient wheat domesticated by the first neolithic farmers. An almost-forgotten species of diploid wheat from the dawn of agriculture, it is very low yielding (the name means "one grain") but high in nutrition and flavour. It's ideal for cultivation in low-input farming systems and grows well in poor soils where other cereals struggle.

Packed in a plastic-free bag.
