Easy And Delicious Tortiglioni Recipes

Looking for Tortiglioni recipes? You’ve come to the right place.

Think of Tortiglioni pasta as Rigatoni with a twist. Spiraled with deeper ridges than the classic Rigatoni, Tortiglioni is a twisted tube pasta with the ideal shape for capturing chunky ingredients, cream sauces and meat ragùs. Born in the region of Naples, Italy, this sturdy short-cut is famous for its starring role in the iconic Bolognese meat sauce, but its brilliance doesn’t stop there.

From baked pasta dishes to summer picnic pasta salads, there isn’t much this spiral tube pasta can’t do. Try Tortiglioni pasta as a feature in rich cream sauces, like Tortiglioni with Ham & Peas. Or give it a shot in a heartier pasta dish like our Beans & Green Pasta with Spicy Italian Sausage. Got a picnic or backyard barbecue coming up? Try Tortiglioni in place of your traditional pasta in creamy macaroni salads and pasta salads dressed in extra virgin olive oil. These fun twisted tubes are truly a pasta shape for all seasons.

Here are some of our favorite Tortiglioni recipes, but don’t be afraid to swap out traditional short cuts (like Penne, Rigatoni and Gemelli) for these fun spirals.
