Stelline (little stars) belong to the minute pasta family to be cooked in broth.
This pasta shape was undoubtedly invented to stimulate the imagination of children who commonly eat this pasta in baby food and vegetable soups. The pasta is shaped like a star and is small and appealing.
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 also be used in thick creamy or velvety soups.

Mezze Maniche Rigate Bio Integrale are bigger than Mezzi Rigatoni, but just as good for capturing all kinds of sauces with their outer ridges which bring out the best in every recipe.
Their chunky shape makes them ideal for serving with hearty meat or fish sauces and for recipes which are tossed in the frying pan.
