It’s true, we have been talking A LOT about Busiate Tumminia Pasta lately, and now we have all the more reason!
In the Front Burner section of the NY Times, Florence Fabricant says, “Now there’s tumminia [to come from the shadow of history to the dinner plate], from a tiny corner of Sicily. An heirloom wheat said to have originated in Greece, it produces a dark flour that has a slightly sweet hazelnut flavor. Tight, taupe-colored corkscrews of busiate pasta, made from stone-ground tumminia and semolina, convey the same flavor…”
These Busiate are wholesome, flavorful, and best of all, they are so fantastically versatile. Use them for anything from your go-to Sunday sauce to, our personal favorite, Pesto Trapanese.
