Crosta & Mollica has entered the pasta category with its first range of Italian pasta and pasta sauces, available to purchase exclusively in Waitrose stores nationwide from 22nd August 2022, with products priced at £3.00.
After delving into the dessert category with the launch of tiramisù and gelato, Crosta & Mollica now unveils a range of four pasta variants, accompanied with four pasta sauces, aiming to help UK consumers create the ‘perfect Italian comfort dish in their own home’.
The Crosta & Mollica pasta range is created with the brightest golden durum wheat Italy has to offer, sourced from a specially selected group of dedicated growers. The pasta dough is crafted with freshly milled flour blended with water from the snow-capped Alps and cut with bronze dies for a rough texture, ensuring that each piece of pasta gets evenly coated in delicious sauce. It is then dried for several hours in the mountain air of the Dolomites, and finally packed in 100% recyclable paper.
The pasta sauce range includes the ‘quintessentially’ classic pomodoro; arrabbiata; puttanesca; a traditional Neapolitan recipe of olives, capers and tomatoes; and alla norma, made to a typical Sicilian recipe of tomatoes, ricotta and aubergines.
