Tripoline, a long ribbon pasta with one wavy edge, are part of the long, curled, dried pasta family. This type of pasta may well have originated from the Campania region.
According to popular tradition, it was created in honour of king Victor Emmanuel II in Naples.
Its particular shape means that the curled part retains more sauce than the smooth part. One of the characteristics of all curled pasta is that, once cooked, the two surfaces have a different consistency.
Tripoline are excellent for preparing pasta dishes with meat ragùs. The recommended sauces should definitely include all those with strong, marked flavours, such as sauces prepared with game and offal.

Conchigliette Lisce, a smaller, smooth variation of the classic Conchiglie Rigate, are a whimsical shape and have always been considered a great pasta for any kind of sauce for all the family because children love it too thanks to its shape inspired by small, attractive seashells.
Enjoy them in soups and vegetable broths. Excellent served with creamy sauces made from tomatoes and pulses such as peas, beans or chickpeas.
