Alfabeto (alphabet) belongs to the minute pasta family to be cooked in broth.
This pasta was undoubtedly invented to stimulate the imagination of children who commonly eat this pasta in baby food and vegetable soups and give them their first introduction to the idea of reading.
It is especially good for preparing clear soups such as broths or consommé, enhanced with croutons or vegetables cut in julienne strips.
This pasta can be used in thick creamy or velvety soups.
