Candele Lunghe 2.2 lbs
Traditionally eaten in the southern Italian region of Campania, candele (“candles”) are long, slightly irregular rolled pasta that are shaped like the tapers used in Catholic mass. Because the pasta are so long—often taller than most pasta pots!—they are often broken into smaller pieces before boiling, or baked in a casserole dish. Try them in your favorite baked ziti recipe, or bake with vegetables like mushrooms or eggplant for a hearty meatless meal. Setaro is one of the few pasta makers who produce this unusual shape from their 80-year-old factory in Torre Annunziata in Naples.
Note: All pastas should be cooked until al dente. There is no specific cook time on these pasta bags. You are encouraged to start tasting the pasta about 10 minutes in to the boiling time!
