Tortiglioni, a captivating pasta variety, hold a special place in the world of Italian cuisine. Originating from Naples, Tortiglioni is a proud member of the maccherone family, one of the oldest and most esteemed types of pasta. The name "Tortiglioni" itself is a nod to their distinctive shape, derived from the Vulgar Latin word "tortillare," which means to wrap in a spiral. This name reflects the intricate and captivating spiral pattern that adorns these pasta tubes, a characteristic imprint left by the lathe used in their production.
  • Tortiglioni's unique shape is not only visually appealing but also highly versatile in the kitchen. Their hollow, ridged tubes are perfect for capturing and holding onto rich and full-bodied sauces. This quality makes Tortiglioni an exceptional choice for those seeking pasta that can stand up to hearty and succulent meat-based sauces. The sauce clings to the ridges and swirls of the pasta, ensuring each bite is a symphony of flavours and textures.
  • However, Tortiglioni's adaptability doesn't stop there. They also excel when paired with tomato-based sauces, which infuse the pasta with a vibrant and zesty character. Vegetable and tomato sauces, with their fresh and wholesome profiles, are a natural match for Tortiglioni, creating a delightful combination that celebrates both flavour and texture.
  • Beyond their traditional applications, Tortiglioni's shape makes them particularly suitable for oven-baked dishes. These pasta tubes can cradle a variety of ingredients, absorbing the flavours of the dish and adding their own unique character. Whether baked with cheese, vegetables, or meat, Tortiglioni adds an intriguing twist to oven-baked creations.
