The Rigatoni are part of the short pasta family with a straight edge cut and ridged exterior. They are a versatile noodle and well suited to a variety of sauces with tomato or vegetable, however, they are most appropriate for meat sauces. They are best when the sauce is sufficiently liquid to be caught by the ridges and gather on the inside of the noodle.

The Pasta Michele Portoghese is an artisanal production.

Many years ago, pasta production was completely manual; after the dough was ready, the next phase was the extrusion by using the old fashioned press, and finished by drying the pasta either with the heat of the sun or in a room heated by the antique stoves.

Today, the pasta of Pasta Michele Portoghese is made using the traditional methods, but is guaranteed with state-of-the-art quality controls, hand selected grains and the perfect dose of durum wheat semolina. Our drying process is slow with a low temperature as it is the most delicate phase requiring maximum attention. The temperature notably affects both the taste and protein content, therefore, our process ensures a high nutritional value, the flavor of the product and causes the pasta to maintain a high quality performance during and after cooking.

Our wholewheat pasta is rich in fiber and easily digestible, making it a great alternative to the classic durum wheat pasta.
