Everything about these new Italian heirloom beans from Rancho Gordo is a marvel, from their flat, tooth-like shape to their hard to pronounce name (Chee-CHAIR-key-ah, for the record). But in every way they challenge, they'll reward, with a flavor that April Bloomfield once described as a cross between a chickpea and pea. Fresh and creamy, you can simmer them with aromatics, whiz them up into a puree or, serve them with your favorite pasta (our favorite) and plenty of fresh herbs.

Pasta Cooking Tips
  • Use a large enough pot so your pasta doesn't stick together.
  • Salt your water aggressively. Not sure how much? Taste it! We use about a tablespoon of Diamond Crystal Kosher salt per quart of water.
  • Remove your pasta from the water before it's totally al dente and SAVE YOUR PASTA WATER!
  • Fresh pasta cooks in about 2 minutes. Dried pasta takes 6 minutes or more.
  • Finish your pasta in your sauce with a ladleful of pasta water.
