    The Mezzi Rigatoni by Benedetto Cavalieri are produced with a special blend of durum wheat semolina, grown in the sunny and windy hills of the South. They are obtained with a die, built in a special bronze alloy, with funnel-shaped holes to give a gentle pressure when the dough takes its shape. The drying at low temperature for about 40 hours allows a perfect osmosis between carbohydrates and proteins. In this way a balanced cooking is created from the core to the surface, for a delicious chewability and a perfect amalgamation with your condiments.

    Since its foundation, Benedetto Cavalieri has focused on innovation and quality, thus using the most modern machines for kneading, kneading, pressing and drawing. To avoid the drying of the pasta in the street, as it happened in those years, it introduces a modern system, called the "Cirillo Method", which consists in drying the pasta in dedicated rooms, equipped with a hot water radiator and a large fan , whose times were marked by the experience of the pasta maker.

    Benedetto Cavalieri pasta is renowned throughout the world for the rigorous selection of Italian durum wheat that grows in soils especially suited to the hills of Puglia and Basilicata; the wheat is grown without the massive and usual use of chemical fertilizers that increase yields at the expense of quality. It is also known for its "delicate" processing method which guarantees the complete preservation of the precious nutritional values of good durum wheat.
