Details

Let's face it, most whole wheat pastas taste...healthy. Luckily, the folks at Pastificio (Italian for "pasta factory") have perfected a blend of heirloom and ancient varieties of organic wheat to create a pasta with deeper character and more interesting flavors (not to mention higher nutritional value more digestible) than their conventional whole wheat counterparts. Whether your tossing these with an all day ragu, quick marinara or velvety cheese sauce, they're sure to hold their own.

Ingredients

Organic Whole Grain Wheat Flour,(Ancient And Heirloom Wheats), Organic Durum Semolina Flour, Artesian Spring Water

How to Use

Bring a pot of water to a boil and salt it ("like the sea" they say). Cook the pasta for 8-11 minutes until al dente, meaning there is still some resistance when you bit it, but it's cooked through. Then the world is your oyster: tomato-based sauces, cheesy sauces, well seasoned vegetables and olive oil. Manga!

Recycling

Good news! The plastic-free box is 100% curbside recyclable and compostable.

These are general guidelines for broadly-recyclable materials. Check with your local recycler to confirm what they take.

Pastificio

Growing up in Brazil, Claudia Bouvier was always surrounded by incredible artisanal foods—and her large Italian family, who often shared meals of fresh pasta. Fast forward to a life in Boulder, CO, with partner Ted Steen. He started exploring sustainable food systems and the impact of unprocessed ingredients on environmental and personal health concerns and she was bit by the entrepreneurship bug. Together, Ted and Claudia began to investigate the benefits of heirloom and ancient varieties of wheat and Pastificio was born.

Along the way, they’ve partnered with like-minded farmers committed to growing organic, heirloom grains. They’ve milled their own fresh flour, and experimented with numerous small-scale pasta production and drying techniques and won Good Food Awards for all of their pastas. Most importantly, they’ve discovered that making nutrient-dense artisanal pasta—much like slow-fermented bread or natural wine—is a process that can’t be automated. From the protein content of each season’s wheat, to the ever-changing humidity of their production kitchen, each box of Pastificio Boulder dried pastas is attentively crafted by human hands to nourish your friends and family.
