Tubetti Rigati (ridged tubes) are part of the very short, dry, straight cut, ridged pasta family and originate from southern Italy.
The shape is what gives this pasta its name because it resembles small tubes.
Tubetti Rigati are recommended for preparing soups with beans or lentils, or vegetable broths.
This pasta is also excellent for preparing very delicate pasta dishes with light tomato and basil sauces.
Available in 500g and 3 Kg packs.
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 Lancette (clock hands).
Rotelle (cog wheels) are also a result of this tradition and have a round shape with spokes joined to a ridged rim.
Enjoy them served with tomato sauce with or without meat, or alternatively this pasta is perfect in broth and minestrone soups.
Try them when preparing delicious, colourful pasta salads.
