More Info

Conchiglie, commonly known as “shell” or “seashell” pasta, is a popular pasta shape that resembles a small shell or conch. The name “conchiglie” is derived from the Italian word for “shells.” This pasta shape is loved for its unique appearance and its ability to hold sauces and ingredients inside its concave shape.

Texture & Cooking

It has a concave, curved shape with ridges on the outside, resembling the texture of a real seashell. The concave design allows the pasta to hold onto sauces and ingredients, ensuring each bite is filled with flavour.

Sauce Pairings

Conchiglie is a versatile pasta shape that pairs well with a variety of sauces and ingredients. Its shell-like form makes it ideal for capturing and holding chunky and creamy sauces alike. It works well with various types of sauces, including:

  • Tomato-based sauces: The concave shape of conchiglie is perfect for capturing chunky tomato sauces with vegetables, meats, or seafood.
  • Creamy sauces: Conchiglie holds creamy sauces like Alfredo, carbonara, or cheese-based sauces, creating a satisfying and rich pasta dish.
