Cavatappi (corkscrews) belong to the family of dried, whimsical shaped pasta with their tubular, curled or corkscrew shape.
The double-ended opening and the distinctive ridges mean that this pasta is perfect with less dense, more liquid sauces, all of which are captured inside it.
Cavatappi (corkscrews) are particularly suited for preparing plates of pasta served with dense, colourful sauces of meat or fish, with green leaf vegetables or vegetables, or strong cheeses.
Try them when preparing delicious, colourful pasta salads.
Available in 500g or 3 Kg packs.
Mezzi Tubetti Lisci (smooth half tubes) are a smaller variation of the classic Tubetti Lisci and are part of the very short, dry, straight cut, smooth pasta family from southern Italy.
The shape is what gives this pasta its name because it resembles small tubes.
Mezzi Tubetti Lisci 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.
