Organic Artisanal Busiate Pasta
Libera Terra (“Freed Land”) champions organic and sustainable farming on hundreds of hectares of land taken from mafia organizations in Sicily, Apulia, Calabria and Campania. The organic durum wheat used for this Pasta is sown between November and January, in rotation with legumes, vegetables and forage. The semolina is cold pressed (-40°C) and this busiate Pasta is slow dried (up to 30 hours) at a low temperature (50°C) to preserve the organoleptic characteristics of the ingredient. The Pasta is bronze drawn giving a coarser, porous texture which helps the sauce or pesto bind to the Pasta shape creating an authentic flavoursome perfect bite with every bite.
La Busiata is a typical of western Sicily. Its name derives from the term “busa” which, according to some, refers to knitting needle and, according to others, the stem of the disa, a Mediterranean grass. To prepare the Busiata by hand, the dough was rolled around the “busa”, giving it the characteristic corkscrew shape.
Serves 4 portions for Pasta.
