Everything about this boutique pasta is thoughtful and special—and you can taste it. Mancini will elevate your pasta game, creating rich, creamy, al dente, restaurant-quality pasta dishes.

Strianese San Marzano Tomatoes Italy's most famous tomato, San Marzanos are the best canned tomatoes in the world, the crème de la crème, the gold standard by which all others must be judged, well worth the higher price tag. Grown in the Campania region of Italy, the San Marzano tomato is a type of plum tomato, and it's longer and thinner than the typical plum tomato, with fewer seeds. San Marzanos are famous for their balanced flavor that combines sweetness, tomatoey intensity and just the right amount of acid.
Roasted Red Peppers Sweet, earthy, smokey, and acidic, Antica Italia produces high-quality roasted red peppers without any unnecessary ingredients. Use half the jar for antipasto, sandwiches or panini and the other half of the jar to make Chef Sergio’s Pasta alla Calabrese (recipe included with this box).
Taralli Chef Sergio Vitale calls taralli “Italian pretzels” and he never takes a road trip in Italy without them! These addictive little ring-shaped snacks are crunchy olive-oil flavored crackers studded with fennel seeds and great for snacking. Italians enjoy them at aperitivo (happy hour), merenda (snack time), or any time of day. Natur Puglia adheres to the farm-to-table credo, collaborating with local farmers and millers to create delicious taralli.
Cantuccini with almonds These traditional almond biscotti will soon be your favorite, the best you’ve ever had. Handcrafted following the traditional method and the original recipe kept by the Santi family of Tuscany, handed down from generation to generation. Enjoy them on their own, with cappuccino… or do as the Tuscans do and dip your cantuccini in a glass of dessert wine! (Chef Sergio even enjoys dunking them into a glass of red wine. There are no rules when something is this delicious!)
