Simple, fresh, local ingredients are the cornerstone of all good Italian cuisine. Which begs the question, why do so many pastas sold in the supermarkets here come all the way across the planet? L’Abruzzese, a family business originating from the Abruzzo region, has been making artisan pasta in South Australia for almost 40 years using the best local flours. Knock up a simple, but striking dinner with this beautiful beetroot pappardelle and some of your favourite pesto. Cooking time 11-14 mins.
