Add braided loopy lorighittas, compact ridged ciccioneddos and twisted andarinos to your catalog of pastas. These traditional shapes from Sardinia, handmade using mildly nutty-tasting Sardinian wheat, are now available from Bona Furtuna, an importer of Italian food products. With their twists, turns and ridges, they are tailor-made to grab sauce and maintain their al dente appeal.
Sardinian Pasta, $75 for three 500 gram (17.6 ounce) boxes, bonafurtuna.com.
