Rummo Pasta is No Ordinary Pasta

I have discovered Rummo pasta and I like it. Why is it a cut above your run-of-the-mill Italian pasta? Well, for two reasons.

Firstly, because Rummo use good quality (Australian!) wheat, Rummo pasta has a higher than normal protein level, and secondly, because Rummo’s special slow manufacturing process creates a higher quality pasta.

Indeed, I have found that the pasta dishes using Rummo pasta are richer and have more body than other more everyday pastas – but, be warned, if you overcook this pasta, you will ruin it.  A boiling time is given on all packets, but you should keep testing the cooking pasta regularly, every few minutes or so, until you think it is cooked in the way you want it to be.

In practice, how long you need to keep that pasta boiling depends on the type of pasta (fusilli, farfalle, spaghetti, etc.) the quantity of water, and whether the water is boiling vigorously or not – and, of course, how you like your pasta.

From experience I’ve found that the time given on pasta packets is something of a minimum, but I’m no expert pasta preparer.  I tend to like my pasta tender, but not floppy, however I’m not too keen on pasta cooked ‘al dente’.  ‘Al dente’ means that pasta is only just cooked and still a little hard.  Many Italians prefer their pasta this way.

Note that cooking pasta ‘al dente’ is something to be done with dried, but not fresh, pasta.

Rummo’s special ‘Lenta Lavorazione’ pasta, as it is known, is available in the States, and it can now be found in the UK too.

Apparently Rummo pasta is distributed to Italian restaurants in the US, so if Italian-American restaurateurs, and more importantly, their customers give it the thumbs up, it must be OK.

If you would like to know more about the subject of ‘lenta lavorazione’, there is an article about it here.  Many thanks to Phil of moveablefeast for this link.

Is Rummo Pasta Gluten-Free?

While Rummo Pasta is renowned for its high-quality ingredients and slow manufacturing process, it is not a gluten-free pasta option. Rummo uses good quality wheat, including Australian wheat, in its pasta production, resulting in a higher protein level than ordinary pasta.

However, individuals seeking gluten-free alternatives may need to explore other specialized pasta brands explicitly formulated without gluten-containing ingredients. Rummo Pasta is celebrated for its traditional pasta excellence but may not be suitable for those adhering to a gluten-free diet due to its wheat-based composition.

Is Rummo pasta from Italy?

Pasta Rummo was founded in 1846 by Antonio Rummo in the town of Benevento, Italy and is still produced there today. What sets Rummo apart is its signature method of making pasta, “Lenta Lavorazione,” which loosely translates to “slow crafted.” This meticulous method ensures a perfect “al dente” texture when cooked.

Rummo Pasta manufacturing process

Rummo Pasta stands out due to its exceptional manufacturing process, known as “Lenta Lavorazione” or slow production. This meticulous technique involves slow extrusion through bronze dies, which imparts a coarse texture to the pasta, allowing sauces to adhere better.
The process is followed by extended drying at low temperatures, ensuring the pasta retains its integrity and natural flavors.
Moreover, Rummo uses high-quality Australian wheat, resulting in a pasta with a higher protein level than conventional varieties. This careful approach to crafting pasta yields a superior product renowned for its rich taste, firm texture, and ability to elevate any dish it graces.

Pasta for Special Occasions

Rummo Pasta is the ideal choice for those special culinary moments. Its exceptional quality, achieved through the ‘Lenta Lavorazione’ slow crafting process, guarantees an exquisite dining experience. Elevate your occasions with this pasta’s rich flavors, firm texture, and superior cooking capabilities, ensuring every dish served is a cut above the ordinary.
