Pasta shapes that resemble small animals found in the garden or in fields are not uncommon.
Nastrini (tiny ribbons), originally from northern Italy, are rectangular with a scalloped edge, pinched together in the centre.
They look like little butterflies and are fun especially for children who associate them with the animal kingdom.
Nastrini are best used in broths, or in vegetable or bean soups.
This pasta is also excellent for preparing very delicate pasta dishes with light tomato and basil sauces.

Sedanini are a smaller variation of the classic Sedani Rigati and are excellent for preparing vegetable soups and broths, but they can also be enjoyed with light tomato based sauces. Vegetable sauces made from tomatoes and pulses are also recommended.
