Paccheri

A brazen and bold pasta with bite.

Paccheri were apparently invented to smuggle Italian garlic to the Prussians, hence their gigantic gauge. A truly unapologetic pasta, which is quickly revealed when enjoying in a red sauce while wearing a white shirt.

On the plate

Paccheri, bold and large as they are, need a succulent condiment to go toe-to-toe with. Rich shellfish medleys, spiked with peperoncino or a fatty rag├╣, do extremely well. They can also be stuffed after a light blanching.
