Quadretti (little squares) belong to the minute pasta family to be cooked in broth.
This is a classic pasta made from leftovers and was usually created, as in the case of maltagliati, from the pasta that was left over from making fettuccine on festive occasions.
This pasta is especially good for preparing clear soups such as broths or consommé, enhanced with croutons or vegetables cut in julienne strips.
It can be used in thick creamy or velvety soups.
Available in 500g pack.s
Tubetti Rigati (ridged tubes) are part of the very short, dry, straight cut, ridged pasta family and originate from southern Italy.
The shape is what gives this pasta its name because it resembles small tubes.
Tubetti Rigati are recommended for preparing soups with beans or lentils, or vegetable broths.
This pasta is also excellent for preparing very delicate pasta dishes with light tomato and basil sauces.
Available in 500g and 3 Kg packs.
