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 from pappardelle (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

I don't have many canapes here. The ones I share are super quick, very tasty and most of all tasty. Your guests will appreciate the effort.

A Quick Note

I wanted to take a minute to say that I do try and weigh as many of the ingredients as I can. I think it helps make recipe results more consistent. Of course professional bakers even measure liquids by weight. I don't mind pulling out my little digital scale when I need to.
