Short cut pasta can make a whole host of fantastic recipes quick and easy. The flexibility of these cuts can lend themselves to being used as ingredients, side dishes or becoming the star of a meal unto themselves.
Rigatoni is a very popular type of pasta in the south of Italy. Rigatoni are large, ridged and sometimes slightly curved tubes of pasta with square ends (unlike diagonally cut Penne). A great small pasta for catching sauce, Rigatoni are often served with tomato and meat sauces. Roman Rigatoni are ideal when full or heavy sauces are on the menu.
Penne Zite is one of the most popular pasta types. Penne means “quills” as the straight tube with diagonal end cuts resemble the end of a quill feather. Penne Zite is a wider penne version and can featuring ridges, like the Cervasi Penne Zite Rigate to cling even more sauce per bite. Zite is made for hearty sauces and is great in baked pasta dishes.
Fusilli is the Italian word for “little spindles”. Cut Fusilli are sometimes referred to as corkscrew pasta with their tightly curled spirals. They are great for holding cream and vegetable sauces, as well as using in pasta salads.
Cavatappi are tubular corkscrew shaped pasta also known as pasta spirals. These originate from Southern Italy and are suited to many types of sauce.
Elbows are curved, short type of macaroni and when blended with great aged cheeses can make any number of fantastic macaroni and cheese dishes.
