More Info

Gemelli is a delightful and visually appealing pasta shape from Italy. The name “gemelli” translates to “twins” in Italian, which aptly describes the appearance of this pasta. Gemelli consists of two short strands of pasta twisted around each other, creating a unique and charming double-helix shape.

Texture & Cooking

The pasta is smooth, with no ridges or grooves, but the twisting action ensures it captures sauces and flavours effectively. It works well with a variety of sauces and ingredients, from light and delicate to rich and hearty.

Sauce Pairings

Gemelli pairs excellently with numerous sauces, including:

  • Creamy sauces: The twisting design of gemelli allows it to hold creamy sauces like Alfredo, carbonara, or cheese-based sauces, creating a luxurious pasta dish.
  • Tomato-based sauces: Gemelli’s shape captures and distributes chunky tomato sauces with vegetables, meat, or seafood effectively.
  • Pesto: The twists of gemelli hold and blend pesto sauce beautifully, providing a burst of herbal and nutty flavours.
