Strozzapreti

Enjoy strozzapreti pasta that you make in 5 minutes. Just add water, and Buon Appetitto. You have restaurant quality pasta that you will find in Britains top Italian restaurants. 

Strozzapreti is surely top of the tree as far as colourful back-stories goes. Literally meaning 'strangle-priests', there are a few theories as to its origin. Perhaps a reference to gluttonous overindulgence as certain clergymen would munch so quickly they would choke. Perhaps a reference to the 'twisting' motion as these shapes are hand-crafted. Or, perhaps less vividly, simply a reference to the traditional 'dog collar' - a priest's 'choker'.

At Pasta Evangelists we evangelise pasta and celebrate pasta recipes from across Italy’s regions, particularly those lesser-known specialities, we use the finest artisanal ingredients and produce from Italy in order to provide the most authentic taste of Italia.
