Mezzi Ditali Lisci (smooth half thimbles) are a smaller variation of the classic Ditali Lisci and are part of the very short, straight cut pasta family from the Campania region.
The shape of this pasta is inspired by the sewing thimble, but is open at the top as well. The chunky shape of Mezzi Ditali Lisci makes it very versatile for pasta dishes with tomato or in soups and vegetable broths.
Mezzi Ditali Lisci are especially suited to preparing pasta dishes with a variety of sauces ranging from meat to fish and from vegetables to pulses. The secret of a perfect recipe is that the sauces have a sufficiently liquid consistency so they penetrate inside the pasta.
This pasta is also just as good for preparing broths and soups with vegetables or pulses.

Fusilli Corti Bucati, originally from the Campania region, owe their distinctive spiral shape to the ancient tradition of rapidly twisting a strand of spaghetti around a knitting needle with a skilled hand.
This pasta is excellent served with hearty meat or vegetable ragùs.
