Minardo - Ditali organic durum pasta, 500g

The smooth thimble, it is a very common format in the Sicilian tradition, loved by young and old, perfect for the pasta alla norma, for the pasta and patayou or for fish first courses.

„Ditale” in Italian means „thimble”. So, the ditali pasta group contains 3 sizes of short pasta tubes; ditaloni, ditali, ditalini; big thimbles, little thimbles, and very little thimbles!

Ditalini are pretty small and mostly used in soups. Ditaloni and ditali are bigger and work well in creamier soups, in salads, pasta bakes, and with a number of pasta sauces including tomato, meat, and seafood sauces. All three sizes can be found in two versions, grooved „rigate” or smooth „lisci”. Grooved pasta is usually served with heavier sauces and smooth pasta in soups or with lighter sauces.

These ditali pasta shapes are normally sold and used as dry pasta and originated in Southern Italy, particularly Campania. But they are used in many traditional dishes, especially soups in Calabria and Sicily.

Tips for cooking
100 grams of pasta = 1 liter of salty water

Premium quality pasta doesn't need oil in the water, it is enough to stir the boiling pasta a couple of times in the first 2 minutes.

  • heat up the water in a tall pot, especially if you cook long pasta, then add salt
  • put the pasta in the boiling water, lower the heat when it starts to boil again
  • cook until the recommended time, then taste it to see if it is the texture what you wish for
  • drain it, do not rinse, just mix with any sauce and serve
  • for pasta salads cool it down under cold water
