Doris authentic Italian bronze dye pasta. Bronze dyes have a more course surface texture and will create a more porous and chalky texture to the pasta. This is considered a more desirable texture for a pasta. The porous texture allows for the pasta sauce to adhere to the pasta and absorb the sauce. Rigatoni are “ridged” tubes. Larger than a penne rigate, but cut across rather than slanted. One of the most popular southern Italian shapes. Serve with a spicy tomato sauce. Made with durum wheat semolina pasta.
