About the Dish
Made from three simple ingredients . . . flour, lukewarm water, and a pinch of salt . . .cavatelli pasta is considered to be one of the oldest types pasta. Cavatelli have an elongated shape with a hollow cavity made by pressing one’s fingers into small pieces of pasta and is very popular amongst several southern regions of Italy. Legend has it that in the old days a bride-to-be’s future mother-in-law would inspect her fingertips to see if they looked well-used and somewhat worn. This was the tell-tale sign that she knew how to make cavatelli and would, therefore, make a great wife. All thougth this old legend hasn't aged well, cavatelli is still a traditional favorite!
