What is Mezzi Rigatoni? Mezzi Rigatoni means “half rigatoni.” It is similar to traditional Rigatoni in that it has the same heartiness, but is smaller in size. The large diameter, outside ridges, and the rough pasta texture created by Al Bronzo’s micro engraved bronze die process make it ideal for capturing sauces on the entire surface of the pasta, inside and out. Try this pasta with a Bolognese sauce, your favorite vegetables, seafood, or in a baked casserole known as “pasta al forno.” Check out our favorite Mezzi Rigatoni pasta recipes on this page or in our recipe section.

Cooking & Measuring
Measuring your pasta
Our Chef’s tip
Add a generous pinch of sea salt to the cooking water to enhance the pasta’s flavor.
Stir your pasta for 1 min after putting the pasta in the water.
Avoid adding oil to the water as it prevents sauce from clinging to the pasta.
Do not rinse your pasta as it removes helpful starch that allows your sauce to cling to your pasta.
Always reserve a cup of pasta water to add to your pasta sauce. It helps bring the flavors together in your pasta dish.Visit our Help and Support page for more helpful cooking tips.
