The Grattata pasta (gratings) belongs to the minute pasta family to be cooked in broth.
In Friuli Venezia Giulia, in the province of Trieste in particular, but also in other regions such as Tuscany and Basilicata, this type of broth was used as a starter at important meals, like wedding receptions, for example. It was thought that it stimulated the appetite in readiness for the rich, hearty dishes that were to follow.
In Umbria, on the other hand, it was cooked for nursing mothers in goose or pork broth.
Grattata pasta 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.

Pappardelle are consumed all over Italy and are part of the long, flat pasta family.
They are excellent when prepared with sauces made from wild meat and game.
They are also recommended for recipes with tomato sauce and cheese, as well as with creamy sauces, which spread well over the entire surface of the pasta.
