Trofie are fine twirls of pasta which have a nice bite to them as they remain quite firm when cooked. They are a traditional pasta shape of the Liguria region and are generally eaten with pesto, another Ligurian speciality. Trofie are perfect for pesto as this type of sauce clings to them really well. They also pair well with all tomato-based sauces.
Our handmade, artisanal pasta in traditional shapes and sizes is bronze die cut, dried at low temperatures and made in Cosenza in Calabria.
Durum wheat semolina, water.
