Rice pasta Unearthed Girasoli Cacio e Pepe

Champion: Unearthed Girasoli Cacio e Pepe

The result of a year-long project by Unearthed, this filled pasta is an easy shortcut to classic Italian dish cacio e pepe. It creates a dish that is as close to authentic as could be, without the notorious pitfalls of cooking the recipe from scratch. The judges were hugely impressed by the “delightful” pasta, which was “so filling and so tasty”. Another praised the flavour and the balance of pecorino and black pepper.
