From the beginning of the twentieth century, many forms of pasta have been inspired by mechanics and the automotive industry, such as Rotelle (cogs) or Lancette (clock hands).
Radiatori (radiators) are also part of this tradition and are cylinder-shaped with wavy fins across them which are really good for capturing sauces.
They are particularly suited for preparing plates of pasta served with dense, colourful sauces of meat of fish, with green vegetables or vegetables, or strong cheeses.
Try them when preparing delicious, colourful pasta salads.
