Passata Rustica

De Cecco Passata Rustica, with a sweet-sour taste, is produced using only the pulp of tomatoes, exclusively grown in Italy.

The tomatoes are plunged into boiling water and skinned, diced and drained to eliminate most of the juice and the seeds.

This is how De Cecco Passata Rustica is made, a sauce with a sweet-sour taste and thick consistency that can be eaten with a fork.

De Cecco only uses Italian-grown tomatoes which are picked when just ripe to bring you the typical fragrance and flavour of Italian tomatoes.

Available in 520 g or 700 g bottles.

Our method

Attention, care, experience, quality at every stage: from our mill to your table.

Selecting the wheat

Selecting excellent primary materials is the first step, the most important one in fact, in creating unique pasta.

The milling

We have been millers for almost two centuries: way back in 1831, Don Nicola De Cecco was already producing “the best flour in the county” in his mill. To this day, we grind all the wheat in our own mill next to the pasta factory, floating with intense and delicious aromas.
molitura

The dough

Cold water and dough at a temperature of less than 15 degrees: two details allowing us to produce pasta that fully respects the primary material.
impastamento

Drawing

While it is the drawing process that gives the pasta its shape, it is the bronze plates that make our pasta uniquely porous, so it captures all the sauce. Hence, this is one of the special procedures we have chosen to preserve and protect. With great pride.
trafilatura

Drying

Another of the secrets behind our pasta is slow drying at low temperature. It is our way of keeping the sensory properties of the wheat intact.
