Tripoline, a long ribbon pasta with one wavy edge, are part of the long, curled, dried pasta family. This type of pasta may well have originated from the Campania region.
According to popular tradition, it was created in honour of king Victor Emmanuel II in Naples.
Its particular shape means that the curled part retains more sauce than the smooth part. One of the characteristics of all curled pasta is that, once cooked, the two surfaces have a different consistency.
Tripoline are excellent for preparing pasta dishes with meat ragùs. The recommended sauces should definitely include all those with strong, marked flavours, such as sauces prepared with game and offal.

Stortini 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. It is also ideal for preparing clear vegetable soups, such as broth or consommé, with the addition of croutons or vegetables cut into julienne strips.
This pasta can be used in thick creamy or velvety soups.
