It is a shorter version of the classic Rigatoni, which is a typical type of traditional pasta from Rome, that has the characteristic ridged external surface and a large diameter and thickness.
The best condiments for Mezzi Rigatoni are meat or vegetable sauces provided that they are dense enough to work their way inside and be trapped by the ridges. Amazing with fish based recipes.
Available in 500g or 3 Kg packs.
Ditalini Lisci (small smooth thimbles) are a smaller variation of the classic Ditali Lisci and are part of the minute pasta family from the Campania region.
The shape of this pasta is inspired by the sewing thimble, but is open at the top as well. Ditalini Lisci are mainly used for preparing vegetable soups with light, tasty broths and enhanced with croutons or vegetables cut into julienne strips.
This pasta can also be used in thick creamy or velvety soups.
