Just when you think you know things, you find out you don’t know things. At least that’s how we felt when we discovered Trofie Colore Pasta. It’s important to point out that this is not a new type of pasta; it’s just new to us. It’s a shape that’s not easily replicated using modern, industrial pasta-making machinery. Rather, its tight spiral shape requires careful crafting, combining traditional, artisanal methods with some very modern machinations. Native to Genova, this style of pasta was originally made by rubbing the dough over a wooden cutting board – the shape actually resembles a curl of wood, only more tightly wound. Our version of this not-so-familiar shaped pasta employs color to make a statement – beet powder, turmeric, spinach, and tomato lend their muted hues, and the pasta stands out in the bag and in the bowl. We only carry this particular cut of pasta during the warm weather months, so if it’s a favorite, we recommend stocking up while you can. At our price of $1.99 for a 16 ounce bag, it’s an affordable splurge. 


Ingredients: Durum Wheat Semolina, Contains 2% or less of the following ingredients for color (red beet powder & silicon dioxide, turmeric, dehydrated spinach, dehyrdated tomato).
