Bronze drawn, organic Spaghettoni from the Girolomoni-Montebello Organic Farm in Le Marche. Premium quality pasta from Le Marche.
Spaghetti’s big brother, Spaghettoni is a great pasta shape which combines perfectly with many sauces.
It is thicker than normal spaghetti and works particularly well paired with hearty, full-bodied sauces. We think it is one of the best pastas for big seafood sauces and many chefs appreciate spaghettoni with sautéed vegetables and pestos. See below for some suggestions.
If you try a quality, bronze-drawn spaghettoni like this, you’ll immediately notice its lovely texture and consistency. Each strand can clearly be distinguished and each bite is rewarded with an ever so slight crunch, like biting into a thin wedge of chocolate.
