Lupetta pasta is sourced from our long established pasta supplier based in Lombardy in the beautiful Franciacorta wine producing region in the Province of Brescia. Each shape is made from high quality, 100% Italian, Kronos® wheat semolina which gives a bright yellow colour and a higher protein level [14%] than standard durum wheat pasta.
Tortiglioni are a robust yet elegant pasta shape, most popular in Southern Italy. The tubular shapes with slanted ridges work particularly well with chunky sauces like ragu, are ideal for pasta bake recipes and especially delicious served with salsiccia [Italian sausage].
When cooking, Lupetta pasta releases less starch and retains its al dente texture. This makes it ideal for ‘double cooking’ if you need to part cook, set aside and then finish cooking briefly later. Perfect for those wishing to spend more time with their guests than in the kitchen!
Made using a bronze die which gives the Tortiglioni a roughened, powdery surface texture which your chosen sauces will adhere to better.
Suitable for vegetarians, vegans and for Halal and Kosher diets.
Tortiglioni are quick to prepare and ready to serve in just 11 minutes. Available in 500g packs from £1.99 or
