Where can I buy trottole pasta?
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?
