Thanks to its hollow tube and ridged surface, cellentani is the perfect shape for heartier pasta dishes. Sauces and vegetables, meat or fish get ‘trapped’ within its corkscrew-like shape, for a delicious forkful every time.
Cellantani, also known as cavatappi, is a unique and versatile pasta shape that resembles corkscrews or twisted hollow tubes.
Texture & Cooking
Cellantani’s unique shape and texture make it incredibly versatile in the kitchen. It works well with both creamy and chunky sauces, making it a great choice for various recipes.
Cellantani pairs exceptionally well with a wide range of sauces, including:
- Creamy sauces: The nooks and crannies in the spirals are perfect for holding creamy sauces like Alfredo, cheese-based sauces, or rich macaroni and cheese.
- Tomato-based sauces: Cellantani’s shape complements tomato-based sauces with vegetables, ground meat, or Italian sausage, ensuring a delightful blend of flavours.
- Pesto: The twists of cellantani capture and distribute pesto sauce evenly, providing a burst of herbal and nutty flavours.
