Lumachine is a shell-shaped pasta which is roughly translated from “snail”. Not too dissimilar to conchiglie, the pinched end helps trap sauce in the main part of the shell.
Our instant range of pasta requires no cooking, simply hydrating in 3-5 minutes with boiling water.
Texture & Cooking
Cooked in just 3½ minutes, our instant lumachine has a firm, chewy texture once reconstituted.
Lumachine pairs well with a range of sauces, including:
- Tomato-based sauces: Lumachine’s snail-like shape is perfect for capturing and holding tomato sauces with vegetables, meats, or seafood.
- Creamy sauces: The hollow centre of lumachine allows it to hold creamy sauces like Alfredo or cheese-based sauces, creating a satisfying and rich pasta dish.
