BELLA ITALIA Busiati Trapanesi Pasta 454g


Sicily is a sun kissed island, characterized by citrus aromas and a rich diverse history. In fact, the culture of fine dining may have been conceived in Sicily when Archestratus, a poet born in Gela, in the 4th century B.C, wrote "Gastronomia" as an ode to the pleasures of the Sicilian table. It is here that tradition and passion combined to create the Bella Italia Busiati. This particular cut is an interpretation of the ancient pasta "Busiata" of Arabic origin, that is obtained by wrapping the "bus", or the thin reed of a plant, around the pieces of dough. The name "Busiata" or "Maccheroni al ferro" refers to a shape of pasta, which is typical of the Trapani area. This pasta cut, made by the expert hands of the Sicilian "housekeepers", is a magic shape that can hang on the last drop of sauce and is ideal for fish-based sauces.
