Linguine piccole (small Linguine) are a tasty variety of the classic Linguine.
Linguine are the most well-known type of long pasta from Liguria: they resemble a small, flat, narrow tagliatella-type pasta and were created to be eaten with traditional pesto.
It is precisely the flattened section and slightly convex shape of this pasta that makes it perfect for trapping the sauce and bringing out all the different flavours.
It is excellent just with butter and sage or combined with fresh tomato based sauces, with vegetables and aromatic herbs or quick, spicy sauces prepared with extra virgin olive oil, garlic, red pepper, and anchovies.
It is also ideal with sauces made with shellfish and seafood and with "white" sauces prepared with cream, mascarpone, soft or melting cheeses with the addition of spices such as saffron, horseradish, curry and ginger.
Available in 500g and 3 Kg packs.
Ghiottole are an original and exclusive pasta shape from the De Cecco range, part of the Fusilli family. The difference is that this pasta has four spirals and are hollow in the centre for even cooking.
Ghiottole are particularly good with ragùs made from meat, mushrooms or with condiments made with vegetables.
