Organic Gigli Pasta 500g
Our organic gigli pasta isn’t just the prettiest pasta that we know, but also scrumptious and practical. The cone formation and ruffled edges which give these pasta shapes their delightful flower-like appearance are also cleverly designed to capture as much of your favourite pasta sauce as possible. The result is that every mouthful is full of flavour.
Sardinian pasta durum wheat - Gigli
Gigli pasta works well with thick, rich sauces. We love gigli with our organic soya sauce topped with smoked ricotta. As our gigli pasta are made entirely from organic durum wheat, they're suitable for both vegetarians and vegans. For those who enjoy meat, try them with a rich tomato and sausage sauce.
While there's some discussion about the origin of gigli pasta shapes, many people believe that this design originated in Tuscany and sometimes known as "gigli Toscani". Its name “Gigli” translated as “Lillies”, which is the emblem of the famous city of Firenze "Florence", is owing to the bell-like floral shape of the pasta. The alternative names, campanelle (little bells) and riccioli (little curls) are just as evocative.
