Strozzapreti are little sticks of pasta, similar to thin bucatini, about 5-6 cm long, wrapped around a knitting needle.
The fairly thick pasta and the typical rough surface enhance the flavour of the sauce.
Strozzapreti go very well not only with classic ragù, but also with other sauces, for example, made by sautéing lard, bacon, parsley with a sprinkling of pepper and grated parmesan or ragùs made from mushrooms or beans. Excellent with sausage, cream and rocket.

From the beginning of the twentieth century, many forms of pasta have been inspired by mechanics and the automotive industry, such as Radiatori (radiators) or Rotelle (cogs).
Lancette (clock hands) are also part of this tradition and have an original shape like tiny bow ties with pointed tips.
Lancette are especially popular with children because of their original, whimsical shape. They are excellent for preparing clear soups such as broths or consommé with croutons or vegetables cut into julienne strips. This pasta can also be used in thick creamy or velvety soups.
