More Info

Tortiglioni is a popular pasta shape from Italy that is loved for its unique and striking appearance. It belongs to the larger family of tubular pasta shapes and is characterized by its large, ridged tubes with a twisted design.

Texture & Cooking

The tubes are twisted, creating a visually appealing and textured pasta. The ridges help the sauce cling to the pasta, making every bite flavorful.

Sauce Pairings

Tortiglioni’s sturdy and twisted shape makes it perfect for holding robust and chunky sauces, making it an excellent choice for baked pasta dishes and casseroles. It pairs well with a variety of sauces, including:

  • Meat-based sauces: The large tubes of tortiglioni are excellent for capturing and holding meat-based sauces with chunks of beef, pork, or sausage.
  • Tomato-based sauces: The ridged surface of tortiglioni allows it to hold thick and flavorful tomato sauces with vegetables and herbs.
  • Cheese-based sauces: Tortiglioni complements creamy cheese-based sauces, such as Alfredo or four-cheese sauce, creating rich and indulgent pasta dishes.
