Mezzi Tubetti (smooth half tubes) are a smaller variation of the classic Tubetti and are part of the very short, dry, straight cut, smooth pasta family from southern Italy.
The shape is what gives this pasta its name because it resembles small tubes.
Mezzi Tubetti 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.
