Trofie, a short twisted pasta is probably the number one choice for pesto, because the sauce gets into the spirals, ensuring that each mouthful is truly flavourful! In fact, this pasta comes from the same region as basil pesto Genovese, the most well known of all pesto sauces.
Trofie were apparently invented in a town on the eastern Ligurian Riviera called Recco near Genova. Legend has it that the women of the region used to sit on chairs along the coast twisting the pasta pieces as they waited for their fishermen husbands to return home.
This is a tricolor version with spinach and tomatoes.
Cooking time (al dente): 13 minutes
