A shape that’s rarely seen but always inspires, our unique Spatziola shape brings innovation and originality to the dinner table. The way the shape cradles the sauce delivers a deliciously different twist to mealtimes. This shape is extruded through bronze dies, resulting in a textured surface that enhances sauce adherence significantly.
This unique and visually striking pasta shape has been designed with deep ridges and a hollow center. Spatziola is a speciality shape that is not as widely available as more common pasta varieties.
Texture & Cooking
Spatziola has a conical or corkscrew-like shape with deep grooves running along its surface. It is hollow in the centre, providing an interesting texture and appearance. The ridges on the surface make it ideal for capturing and holding onto sauces, allowing for a more flavourful eating experience.
When it comes to pairing sauces and ingredients with Spatziola, you have several options:
- Tomato-based sauces: The deep grooves of the shape work well with chunky tomato-based sauces, as the pasta can hold the sauce effectively.
- Creamy sauces: Spatziola pairs beautifully with creamy sauces, allowing the sauce to coat and cling to the ridges, resulting in a rich and indulgent dish.
- Pesto: The twists and hollow centre make it an excellent choice for capturing and absorbing the flavours of pesto sauce.
- Meat and vegetable sauces: Spatziola can be paired with various meat, seafood, or vegetable-based sauces to create a hearty and flavourful meal.
