This fresh, gluten free pasta looks & feels a little different to our signature egg pasta as it has been handcrafted using a nutritious blend of buckwheat, sorghum and other health-boosting cereals. The rustic texture of this pasta helps every last morsel of sauce to cling to the strands, ensuring each mouthful is full of delicious flavour. The buckwheat also gives the pasta a subtly nutty flavour, which many of us find a welcome twist.
There are few Italian sauces better known than this classic ragù made by slow-cooking beef mince with plenty of aromatics, although on British menus you would be far more likely to encounter Bolognese sauce matched with spaghetti. Curiously, as ubiquitous a combination as this may be in British households, it’s one that simply doesn’t exist in Italy. Instead, in Bologna, where the sauce originates, tagliatelle are the authentic pairing.
Tagliatelle are a flat pasta, whose official width and thickness as stated by the Bolognese Chamber of Commerce are 6mm x 1mm. Legend states that tagliatelle was invented on the night of Annibale II Bentivoglio’s wedding to Lucrezia from the house of Este in 1487, by Lucrezia’s talented chef, after seeing her ribbon-like hairstyle. However, there is much speculation as to if this was actually true or a joke made up by humourist Augusto Majani in 1931.
