Gnocchetti Sardi (also called Malloreddus)

Gnocchetti Sardi

This little pasta originates from the 2nd largest Italian island and where people tend to live the longest!

ūüćīThis is a traditional pasta¬†people eat on the island of Sardinia¬†(Sardegna)¬†called¬†Gnocchetti¬†(nyo-KAY-tee)¬†Sardi¬†or ‚Äúlittle Sardinian gnocchi‚ÄĚ.

ūüćīThe shape of¬†Gnocchetti Sardi¬†(also¬†called¬†Malloreddus) is achieved by hand-rolling the dough on a round reed basket or special wood board.¬† This pasta is called ‚ÄĚlittle Sardinian gnocchi‚ÄĚ because of its shape as it looks like tiny potato gnocchi but it is made with durum wheat semolina, water, and salt. ‚Ā†
ūüćīThe pasta‚Äôs ingredients create a considerably sturdier and toothier quality. It is pasta you usually find Italians eating at home on Sunday or in restaurants served with traditional sauces, such as meat ragu!‚Ā†

ūüćīThis pasta is perfect with meat sauces, light tomato sauces with cheese, or in casseroles.¬†
