Cook al forno, perfect with meat sauces to fill the big shells.

Organic Spaghetti (500g) - L'Anima di Grano

£2.90

Slightly thicker than standard spaghetti, this is actually called "spaghettoni", and can handle slightly thicker, heavier sauces.

In Italian, spaghetti means \'little strings\', and this Spaghettoni is a thicker version of standard spaghetti, with a diameter of about 3mm. Made from organic durum wheat semolina (which has high digestibility levels) combined with only the purest spring water, the pasta is bronze-drawn for the highest quality, taste and texture. Spaghetti is a staple food of traditional Italian cuisine and therefore almost every Italian region boasts its own signature spaghetti dish. As spaghettoni is significantly thicker than its more common counterpart, it can be paired with slightly thicker, heavier sauces. Try it with aubergine and tuna bottarga if you\'re feeling gourmet, or intriguingly, "con crema di patate" (a creamy sauce made with solely potatoes, garlic, parmesan and oil) if your larder is looking a little empty.
