From the beginning of the twentieth century, many forms of pasta have been inspired by mechanics and the automotive industry, such as Radiatori (radiators) or Lancette (clock hands).
Rotelle (cog wheels) are also a result of this tradition and have a round shape with spokes joined to a ridged rim.
Enjoy them served with tomato sauce with or without meat, or alternatively this pasta is perfect in broth and minestrone soups.
Try them when preparing delicious, colourful pasta salads.
Available in 500g packs.
Farfalle, originally from Lombardy and Emilia Romagna, take their name from their distinctive bow tie shape with a tight frill in the centre.
The condiments recommended for Farfalle are light sauces: sauces made from butter with peas and ham; white sauces with delicate flavours made from salmon and cream; sauces made from mild, soft cheeses with a dash of saffron or curry.
This pasta is also great for preparing delicious, colourful, imaginative pasta salads.
Available in 500g and 3 Kg packs.
