MANICARETTI Is Pasta Perfect!
Never one to say basta to pasta I’ve always thought I had my often served spaghetti dishes very well prepared (she said modestly). Loved to offer a heaping plate of pasta topped with sauce to both family and friends. Truth be told I saw no need for improvement - silly me!
After seeing Manicaretti pastas recommended in several chef written cookbooks I thought I’d give them a try - I tried, I ate, I will never have any other! It is simply amazing what an enormous difference a really good, fresh pasta can make. In the past I thought of pasta as something to be smothered in sauce - how wrong I was. No need to smother, simply top with and let the rich, delicious taste of the Manicaretti pasta be enjoyed.
We have no favorites among the plethora of pastas Manicaretti offers - they are all superb. We’ve loved the Maccheroni al Terce, a diminutive curled pasta that seems to cup a bit of sauce, and the Orzo, a rice like pasta that is wonderful in soup or as a side dish. The spaghetti? Pure heaven. Fettuccine? Fabulous. Linguine? Lovely. Well, you get the idea.
