Alfabeto (alphabet) belongs to the minute pasta family to be cooked in broth.
This pasta was undoubtedly invented to stimulate the imagination of children who commonly eat this pasta in baby food and vegetable soups and give them their first introduction to the idea of reading.
It is especially good for preparing clear soups such as broths or consommé, enhanced with croutons or vegetables cut in julienne strips.
This pasta can be used in thick creamy or velvety soups.

Gnocchi are originally from Campania and were created from the imagination of the pasta-makers who, while remaining true to the tradition of semolina pasta, took their inspiration from the classic potato gnocchi.
Gnocchi have a distinctive concave, ribbed shape and are excellent for capturing and bringing out the best in denser sauces, such as Bolognese sauce.
The most popular condiment for Gnocchi is tomato: from a simple tomato and basil sauce to the heartiest meat sauces, but they are also very good served with pesto.
