Cavatelli Pasta Recipe
no images were foundCavatelli Pasta Recipe This is one of my favorite pasta’s. It was a real rarity when I was growing up and served always on a Sunday or holiday. I love this so much that I actually bought a cavatelli maker from the states, so I can have it here in Sweden. This is something you will never find here.
A real classic pasta Cavatelli is generically known as Gnocchetti, Manatelle, Orecchie de Prete, Strasnari and Truoccoli. A specialty for several big religious holidays. It is served in many ways but it seems that the sauces preferred are oil based with chili (always) and a seasonal vegetable. A classic is a butter and sage sauce, but it can be served with a wide variety of sauces. The photo below is Ricotta Cavatelli that I made myself using a Cavatelli maker I purchased on Amazon. Handmade varieties aren’t usually folded so tightly.
Like gnocchi, it can be made with pumpkin or butternut squash.
