Known as dischi volanti in Italy, which literally translates to “flying discs”, bonetti’s shape somewhat resembles flying saucers. As well as resembling Mexican hats, bonetti also gets its name from the Italian word for “bonnets”. Taking only 5-8 minutes to cook, this range of pasta is a great option for pasta and dried sauce concepts, or to simply reduce the cook time within your process.
Bonetti is great for pasta salads and thicker, chunkier sauces.
Texture & Cooking
Bonetti has a firm, chewy texture when cooked.
Bonetti pasta works well with a variety of sauces, including:
- Tomato-based sauces: The hollow centre and ridged surface are perfect for capturing and holding tomato-based sauces with vegetables, meats, or seafood.
- Creamy sauces: The twists and curls of the pasta provide a delightful texture in creamy sauces like Alfredo or cheese-based sauces.
