Girasoli literally translates to “sunflowers”, which is what the shape of this pasta is inspired by. Girasoli pasta get their shape from special molds that the chef uses to delicately mold the dough with. It is similar to a cookie cutter, which allows the person making them to create special designs. This type of pasta is untraditional, but is related to ravioli and tortelloni, in that they are all filled pastas and typically hand-folded.
Our girasoli are filled with braised veal and beef that have been slow-cooked with white wine and aromatic flavours. We top our girasoli with burro e salvia (sage butter), which enriches the meaty texture of the filling. A sprinkling of our crushed grissini, with beautiful poppy seeds adding crunch and flavour, complete this sumptuous filled pasta dish.
