Both pasta's are superb. Le Trofie with Raab is a great combination. I'm experimenting with Orrichiette used it with prawns and a white wine sauce . excellent but maybe not what was intended!

You can choose from 4 different types:
- Orecchiette - used traditionally with Cima di Rapa to make the national dish of Puglia 'Orechiette e cima di rapa' with garlic, anchovies, chilli and a splash of Puglian wine. Natural or coloured (veg dye)
- Trofie - used traditionally with Pesto Genovese in Liguria. Pesto is not usually eaten with Spaghetti in Liguria so to eat Pesto faithfully, you need Trofie pasta. Natural or coloured (veg dye)
I bought the tricolor pasta and ate it with steamed potatoes, green beans and pesto. It it a lovely delicate shape, far superior to anything I can buy locally. We very much enjoyed eating thsiis.
