Description: Benedetto Cavalieri Linguine is a long artisan pasta the name of which means "very small strings". Linguine pasta is reminiscent of small rectangular flat spaghetti, produced with a rigorous selection of wheats that grow in purposely chosen fields especially on the hills of Apulia and Basilicata. The durum wheat is cultivated without the use of chemical fertilisers. Extruded through traditional bronze dies, this Benedetto Cavalieri Linguine pasta is packed uncut and folded.

Linguine pasta cooks in 7-8 minutes and keeps intact the flavor of wheat.

Benedetto Cavalieri started growing wheat in the region of Apulia in the South of Italy. The company was founded in 1918 and makes top quality artisanal pasta from locally grown durum wheat flour by manufacturing process called “delicate method” which involves long kneading, slow pressing, drawing and drying in a low temperature. Pasta shapes are made with bronze dies, which give a rough surface to the finished pasta allowing it to hold more sauce. The pasta has a flavour of quality durum wheat with natural chewy texture and high nutritional values of wheat retaining carbohydrates and proteins.

Ingredients: Durum wheat semolina

Our Recommendation: Linguine shaped pasta are great served with sauces of aromatic herbs; such as Pesto Genovese or sauces involving fish and molluscs. We love the combination of flavours with our Benvenuti rocket Pesto, a twist of innovation to a very classic recipe with an absolutely stunning result!
