I can see why you had to make them, they're too cute.

Alicia (foodycat)

How cute! You could use some squid ink and make witch's hats!


These are delightful! I can only imagine how the sauce gathers inside the cone of the "hat" making each bite full of flavor.

What a delightful shape! The Encyclopedia of Pasta is a great book.


What beautiful pasta. Complimenti!


How cute these are! have to try them one day :)

Bread & Companatico

another amazing pasta from the queen of hand-made everything. you rock :) barbara

Lori Lynn

Oh, those are super-cute. I was wondering what type of sauce you would use, then I see the tomato sauce at the end. Perfecto.


Those hats are really cute and I'm sure tasted really good. It was fun watching you make them and hearing the director's voice. :-)

Simona Carini

Thank you, Kalinda!

Brilliant idea, Alicia! I will certainly try that. It is not easy to find uncleaned squid, but now that you've put the thought into my head, I won't rest until I do it.

Indeed it does, DueSpaghetti.

It is, Frank, and I hope to get more ideas from it.

Grazie, Adri.

Thanks, Ivy.

Thank you, Barbara. This was really fun.

Thanks, Lori Lynn. I love my simple tomato sauce. I make a batch and use it for more than pasta.

Ciao Paz. The director is very patient, I must say. I hope the videos are helpful.

This is supposed to be one of Oretta's favorite of pasta shapes! We learned to make a similar one in Puglia, called capelletti mesicani, and formed from half of a circle instead of the whole circle of pasta dough. Can't wait to try this one out!

Simona Carini

After I made it, I remembered that it was in the photos of the article about the book in the NY Times. It's a really lovely pasta shape. I am not familiar with cappelletti messicani and now of course I am curious.


These are great, I'll be trying them soon. I'm fascinated by pasta shapes and whenever I see new ones I get quite excited. I recently wrote a blogpost about pasta shapes: http://ambradambra.wordpress.com/2013/04/25/pasta-shapes-my-memories/


Simona, lo sai che quando cerco ispirazione per la pasta fatta a mano vengo sempre da te?
e trovo sempre quello che cerco!
stupenda donna tu!

Simona Carini

E' un onore per me essere di ispirazione, Sandra. Grazie per le parole gentili. Riesci sempre a farmi arrossire :)
