The pasta dish that I made last month, Vecchia Bettola, was supposed to be made with penne pasta. I didn’t have any at the time, so used macaroni noodles instead. I made the dish again, but this time used campanelle noodles. They are my favorite newly discovered noodles and I’ll never use another noodle for this dish ever again!
The curly noodles are not only adorable, but they compliment any sauce dish as the sauce beautifully wraps into the ruffles and interior column of this pasta just perfectly.
