Most commonly referred to as ‘shells’, Conchiglie Rigate cuddle sauces more than any other pasta due to the rigid outer and smooth, deep, cave-like interior. They are excellent with lighter sauces and those with chunky pieces. For our family, these shells are the basis for the most awesome twist on ‘Mac ‘n’ Cheese’; each pasta piece oozes cheese and those oh so cheeky bacon pieces seem to magically hide in the centres for an exhilarating crispy surprise.
Made in 2 days not 2 hours
Mass manufactured pasta takes two hours to make, arriving as flour and leaving in a plastic bag. Ours takes two days. We dry our pasta slowly overnight, at low temperatures, allowing the dough to gently mature and develop flavour.
Large factories create shapes using Teflon plastic; we use traditional bronze metal dies. They are heavy, expensive and absolutely magical! Each piece of pasta has a wonderfully rough surface – allowing them to cuddle and absorb sauces, creating beautiful, cohesive dishes of food.
No bright yellow, shiny pasta swimming around in the bottom of a bowl here!
