Toppe is a thick noodle that is 1½- to 2-inches wide and about 6-inches long. It is found in Tuscany, especially in the Casentino. Toppeliterally means “patches”; its shape resembles the cloth patches the poor used to mend their clothes. What distinguishes toppe frompappardelle (in addition to the former’s added width) is that traditionally toppe is made with a blend of two wheat flours: durum and tipo 00
