Tronchetti are a tasty alternative to the classic Gnocchi and Chicche, typical, traditional Italian dishes. They are based on the original recipe that combines selected potatoes and soft flour, but the difference is they only take 2 minutes to cook. The characteristic tubes combined with the soft consistency of the dough bring a touch of originality to even the simplest recipes.
This rice is one of the most widely used in Italy thanks to its characteristics of shape and substance. The grains are pleasantly large and visually appealing. This rice is particularly suited for both creamy risottos and "timballi" (oven-baked dishes) and "supplì" (rice croquettes).
When preparing a risotto, after removing the onion, let the the oil and butter reduce, add the rice and stir with a wooden spoon, so the rice does not come into contact with cold or sharp surfaces. Only when the rice has been toasted to perfection, i.e. it has absorbed all the condiment and has become shiny and transparent, can the other ingredients, called for in the recipe, be added.
Vacuum-packing prevents the rice from changing and preserves the colour, flavour and nutritional values of the grain.
