Puntalette belong to the minute pasta family to be cooked in broth.
This pasta shape was undoubtedly invented to stimulate the imagination of children who commonly eat this pasta in baby food and vegetable soups. The pasta has a double point and is small and appealing.
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.

Among the countless versions of maccherone, apparently Sedani were first created in Naples with a smooth shape and the name "denti di elefante" (elephant's tooth), and later acquired the grooved pattern like the ridges on celery, according to some from Tuscany, and the change in the original name.
Sedani Rigati (ridged version) go very well with elaborate condiments such as ragùs made from meat and mushrooms or sausage, but they are equally as good for preparing oven-baked dishes or simply with tomato and basil.
Available in 500g or 3 Kg packs.
