Fettuccine rigate


#1

I have not been able to source fettuccine rigate lately. Regular fettuccine sticks together. Any places to try?


#2

Your local supermarket? Or any place that carries Barilla.


#3

I’ve tried multiple supermarkets for Barilla.


#4

Eataly?


#5

State Joe’s carries Barilla.


#6

I would check Bay Cities in Santa Monica, though I’ve never seen it there.
It’s a fairly rare pasta type, actually.
If I might delicately suggest that if your fettuccine is sticking then you have a technique issue or an ingredient quality issue.
There really shouldn’t be any sticking going on.


#7

Might make sense to investigate why your regular fettucine are sticking together. That’s not normal.


#8

OP here.
I drop the regular fettuccine into boiling water in a big pot. I tried dropping a few at a time, but that did not lead to any better results. Any suggestions? As an aside, I clicked on the wrong button on Amazon and now own 20# of spaghetti rigate.


#9

This is store-bought fettuccine? What brand?


#10

Do you not stir the pasta while it cooks? I drop it all at once, and then stir it a few times to prevent sticking. That goes for any kind of pasta.


#11

Drizzling in a little olive oil in the end (after you’ve strained it) might also help?


#12

Are you experiencing sticking during cooking or after cooking?


#13

Can you return it if you haven’t opened it?


#14

And I just saw it at Smart and Final (on Pico at Cotner in WLA).


#15

Alas, no fettuccine rigate at S & F at Cotner, only regular.


#16

D’oh! Sorry. I checked at Eataly today and didn’t see it either.


#17

It’s a pretty obscure type. I’ve never come across it.
