Where can I buy trottole pasta?

by Stacey

Hi Matt,

I am looking to purchase 'trottole' pasta and I don't know where to go to purchase it.

I need enough to make pasta salad for 400 people. Please help!


Response: Hi Stacey. I know of a couple of places (I'm assuming you are based in the US, if not let me know).

First is Amazon. A company called Lensi actually sells 20-pack batches of 16-ounce (454g) trottole bags.

So, if we assume an 80g of trottole per serving of pasta soup, my calculations suggest you would need to buy 4 (specifically 3.5!) of these 20-packet batches.

To buy from Amazon try this Lensi Trottole Pasta page.

Alternatively, in case that single Amazon supplier is out of stock etc., I also found another online retailer called Mozzarita, which imports scrumptious Italian goodies into the US.

Hope that helps. Please let me know how you get on with the soup - which flavor are you going for?

Matt :-)

Freezing fresh ravioli
by: Anonymous

Hi Matt:

Fantastic site!

I want to make ravioli from scratch and give some to my mum, but I know she won't use it right away.

Is it possible to freeze fresh ravioli, and if so, do I have to dry it first if it has egg in it?

Thank you so much, and keep up the good work!

Yes and yes!

Hi Tamsin,

Yes I definitely think that is do-able. I would dry out your ravioli at room temperature (in addition to the egg, this also will stop them from sticking together in the freezer), then pop the shapes in Tupperware or something similar to give to your mum. Laura and I reckon she can freeze them for up to a month or two without any probs.

When the time comes to eat the parcels, just have your mum defrost them at room temp again, then boil up in a big full pan of boiling, well salted water. When the ravioli rise to the surface, give them just a minute or two more, then add sauce and serve (even just a melted butter sauce will be nice if your mum's not sure what to go for - or else she/you might try these pasta sauce recipes for inspiration).

Good question - buon appetito!
