Linguine Infused with Lemon & Pepper
These artisanal linguine flavoured with lemon and pepper have been made with 100% semolina from central Italy and with wheat germ, the heart of the wheat grain which is normally removed when the grain is milled and therefore not found in most types of pasta. Bronze drawn, they have a rough texture and are very porous and therefore able to absorb sauces really well. This pasta is healthy, nutritious and tasty!
This is the kind of pasta eaten before the Second World War, before mills started refining the wheat more. It releases an subtle but exceptional flavour of wheat when cooked, is darker in colour (the cooking water also turns darker, as the germ is released in the pan) and tastes incredible even with just olive oil and a little sea salt.
Wheat germ is not only rich in flavour but is also full of nourishing active ingredients and the way that the pasta has been produced means that it retains high levels of Vitamin E, that is very important for its antioxidant power, Vitamin D which helps our body in preventing cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and high level of cholesterol and vegetable proteins.
Serving suggestions: These linguine have a delicate lemon and pepper flavour and can be enjoyed as mentioned above with just a little oil and salt, with fish or vegetables, they would also go well with a cacio e pepe sauce.
