Strozzapreti are little sticks of pasta, similar to thin bucatini, about 5-6 cm long, wrapped around a knitting needle.
The fairly thick pasta and the typical rough surface enhance the flavour of the sauce.
Strozzapreti go very well not only with classic ragù, but also with other sauces, for example, made by sautéing lard, bacon, parsley with a sprinkling of pepper and grated parmesan or ragùs made from mushrooms or beans. Excellent with sausage, cream and rocket.
