From the mind of James Beard Award winner Dan Pashman, creator and host of The Sporkful food podcast, comes CASCATELLI (Italian for “waterfalls”). Three years in the making, this brand new shape was created in collaboration with the artisans at Sfoglini. Pair with turnip greens, rucola (Arugula) and ricotta, sautéed garlic and broccoli, or enjoy with pork ragu! The suggested cook time for this pasta has been revised to 13-17 minutes. Check it at 13 minutes and serve to your taste. Cascatelli is designed to maximize the three qualities by which Dan believes all pasta shapes should be judged:
- Sauceability: How readily sauce adheres to the shape
- Forkability: How easy it is to get the shape on your fork and keep it there
- Toothsinkability: How satisfying it is to sink your teeth into it
Listen to the story of Dan’s quest to create this shape in a special Sporkful series entitled “Mission: ImPASTAble,” available in your podcasting app or at Sporkful.com. And try cascatelli today to experience the next chapter in pasta history!
